This format reflects the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of scientific research. As a biochemistry and molecular biology student, it also means you’re prepared for professional schools—such as medical, dental and veterinary schools—and graduate programs.
As a biochemistry and molecular biology student, you will work with biochemistry faculty on collaborative biochemistry research that takes your learning to the next level.
Get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art biochemistry instrumentation and techniques.
Develop your professional credentials by presenting your collaborative biochemistry research findings at conferences.
In BIO 3770 Bioinformatics you’ll learn the techniques requiring the use of molecular biology databases, including DNA and protein sequence analysis, multiple sequence alignments, 3-D protein structure modeling and prediction, phylogenetic tree building, and RNA sequence analysis.

I challenge students to build their own connections between the very small (molecular and nanoscale principles) and the very large (macroscopic phenomena) through active hands-on and brains-on experiences that bridge the chemistry classroom and the chemistry laboratory. These connections extend from our chemistry coursework to the diverse topics and fields that fascinate our students, and it is these interconnections that will lead to breakthroughs, both big and small, that will continue to change and improve the world.
In addition to shadowing and interning with numerous doctors, dentists, veterinarians, physical therapists, and other medical professionals, in hospitals, clinics and private practice, our students have gained experience at other notable companies as well.
The biology and chemistry departments sponsors several societies and honorary organizations that may be of benefit to biochemistry and molecular biology students: Beta Beta Beta, affiliated with the American Association for the Advancement of Science; American Medical Student Association/Pre-Professional Society, a chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA); The American Chemical Society;
Gamma Sigma Epsilon, national chemistry honor society.
