We develop the world’s next great scientists by getting students out of the book and into the lab.
Students learn hand-in-hand with our distinguished faculty — internationally recognized, award-winning researchers who work at science’s cutting edge, maintaining externally funded laboratories that investigate the world’s most exciting questions.
We work on high-impact research projects addressing real-world problems in metabolism and metabolic engineering, structural and chemical basis of protein function, molecular mechanisms of disease, plant and microbial biochemistry and biotechnology.
Biochemistry/Redox Biology Sponsored Seminars
External speakers from around the world are regularly invited to share their cutting-edge science in seminars and at symposia throughout the year. The Biochemistry Department Seminar series allows faculty and students to host speakers of international renown each week.
