Biochemistry addresses the chemical principles that underlie biological processes. The course of study in biochemistry emphasizes macromolecular structure and function, control of gene expression, and metabolic regulation as they relate to basic and biomedical science. The strength of the program lies in the extensive research experience in the laboratories of the faculty.
