Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

About Biochemstry and Molecular Biology

Biochemistry and molecular biology, as the intersection of the disciplines of chemistry and biology, applies the understanding of interplay of energy, atoms and molecules to the intricate processes which occur within a living cell. The department, attentive to the curriculum recommendations of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, coordinates pertinent course offerings from the departments of chemistry and biology to provide the framework of integration.

The degree requires a sequence of courses which provide a background research in biomolecular sciences for employment at the bachelor's level or graduate training in related areas. It also provides preparation for students wanting to enter professional training programs in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy or other health professions.
