Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Program Information

Professors: Furge, Langeland, Moore, Stevens-Truss

A major focus of modern scientific inquiry is uncovering the physical and chemical mechanisms underlying biological systems. Therefore, an interdisciplinary concentration in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is offered for students interested in advanced study at the interface between biology and chemistry. Courses include a selection from the physical and biological sciences; most are laboratory based and make use of sophisticated, cutting-edge instrumentation and techniques. Students interested in graduate studies of molecular-level phenomena are especially encouraged to consider this plan of study.
