Biochemistry deals with living organisms at their most fundamental level, molecular and atomic.
- A thorough background is provided in the molecular aspects of biology and biochemistry
- Theory taught in the classroom is applied in undergraduate laboratory classes and individual research projects
- Coursework prepares you for advanced study in biochemistry or a career in industry or government.
- All have received federal and industrial support for their research projects
- All regularly publish in scientific journals
Undergraduates are encouraged to do independent research in a field such as biomaterials, bionanotechnology, drug design, molecular biology, or biomimetic chemistry. The Department of Chemistry maintains:
- $8.6 million worth of nuclear magnetic resonance instrumentation
- mass spectrometers
- X-ray diffractometers
- IR-UV-Vis spectrometers
- liquid and gas chromatographs to identify, purify and characterize chemical compounds
- cell culture and microbial growth incubators
Internships, cooperative education experiences and volunteer opportunities are available.
