Biochemists find inspiration at the intersection of life and science.
Students in this rapidly growing field apply biological and chemical theories and techniques to the understanding of life processes. You'll explore concepts such as the determination of hereditary traits, utilization of energy, propagation of nerve signals, and the molecular basis of physiological and pharmacological phenomena.
Biochemists work in industries like agriculture, medical research, biotechnology and nutritional research. Our students go on to positions in research and industry, as well as graduate study in biochemistry, medicine, genetics and other related fields.
