Center for Biological Chemistry Graduate Program

broadening your prosepective

Our program is positioned at the interface of the physical sciences (bioinorganic, bio-organic, biophysics), the biological sciences (genetics and molecular biology), and the applied sciences (biotechnology).  Such breadth in expertise affords students a rich training environment that strongly supports their career development and productivity.  By bringing together our diverse areas of interest and expertise into these concentrated disciplines, we are able to offer students an opportunity for growth by interacting with scientists at every level.  Within the below training areas, faculty are investigating a variety of experimental questions relevant to agricultural and biomedical research.
