The Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology offers a high quality learning environment for both undergraduate and graduate students within a high powered research program. We offer exciting research opportunities for our undergraduate majors and highly personalized training to Ph.D. graduate students and postdoctoral trainees. The BMB faculty has a tradition of excellence in teaching, while their research accomplishments have been recognized nationally and internationally in the areas of biochemistry, and molecular, cellular, and structural biology, and is supported by the highest levels of external funding per faculty in the College of Natural Sciences.
Biochemistry researchers have made an antibody-based probe with a powerful distinction: Their genetically encoded probe works in living cells.
Researchers have designed a new experimental system that can rapidly assess the pathogenic effects of a drug on developing neurons.
Researchers have developed imaging technology and computational analyses to visualize viral frameshifting at the level of single molecules in living cells.
The College of Natural Sciences is now accepting applications for the fall semester in the Professional Science Master’s Degree in Biological Data Analytics and the Professional Science Master’s Degree in Microscope Imaging Technology.
