About

An integrative + innovative department

Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry is a modern, vibrant academic science department offering both undergraduate and graduate programs. We are housed in Simon Hall, a multidisciplinary science building strategically located between the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Medical Sciences, and Physics. This location mimics the goals of our department, which is to build scientific bridges between these various disciplines by stimulating interdisciplinary research among different fields.

Our department continues to grow, with a number of faculty researchers and teachers who utilize leading-edge physical and structural biology methodologies to address exciting questions in the life sciences. Our areas of expertise are broad and include such sub-disciplines as structural virology, chromosome biochemistry, and the analysis of membrane receptors.
