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.
How a CSU scientist’s research into how viruses mutate could have big implications during the next pandemic
CSU Professor Olve Peersen’s team focuses on bettering understanding the mechanisms behind how RNA viruses replicate and mutate, information that could lead to better treatments and vaccines for both new and emerging pathogens.
Researchers at Colorado State University have developed a new imagining technique that shows key cellular interactions over time and space in a way that was not previously possible.
CSU researchers shed light on the mechanisms of cellular transport that prevent severe brain disease
New findings from the Markus Lab identify an important step in the process by which the molecular motor dynein is turned “on” so that it can transport various cellular cargoes to their destinations in cells.
A Colorado State University student has played a key role in securing new regulations to protect water quality in mobile home parks – after learning that elevated levels of lead were found in the water at the mobile home park where they live.
