Introduction to the Biochemistry Major

Join our students who work hand-in-hand with award-winning faculty in labs to make discoveries and to invent new technologies. UNL Biochemistry undergraduates are regularly included as authors on scientific publications and as co-inventors of patents.

We view our students as future colleagues — whether you become a fellow PhD, medical doctor, or a program manager at a pharmaceutical company. You are a vital part of our community of scholars and are a valued team member.
