Biochemistry arose from the fields of biology and chemistry to investigate biological molecules and understand how their interactions result in living systems. In today's society, understanding in this discipline is essential for informed, critical thinking about many of the significant issues in science, health and public policy.
The Biochemistry program has been awarded full acreditation by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)!
We are now one of only ~60 colleges and universities in the country to be accredited by the ASBMB, and the only Biochemistry Program in the Five Colleges to have this distinction. Please read the remarkably laudatory letter from the ASBMB awarding the acreditation to our Program.
Life Sciences Colloquia/Chemistry Seminars
Scientists from around the country present their current research.
