New!  Join Our Award Winning Faculty: BMC is Seeking Applications from Qualified Candidates for Assistant Professor. Scroll down for Details.

The Department of Biomolecular Chemistry (BMC) in the School of Medicine and Public Health has been at the forefront of biochemical research for over 90 years. The department is sited in new facilities in the center of the UW-Madison campus and is fully integrated with the other basic science departments in this world-class public university, fostering collaborations among faculty across the spectrum of biomedical science.

As part of the School of Medicine, one of BMC's primary missions is teaching human biochemistry to future physicians (medical students) and undergraduate students in healthcare related programs. Biomolecular Chemistry partners with the Department of Biochemistry to offer a world-class graduate program in biochemistry (Integrated Program in Biochemistry). The excellence of, and dedication to teaching by our faculty is reflected in numerous Chancellor's and Dean's Teaching Awards.

Research in the department spans a broad range of questions and methodologies. Research topics include DNA replication, chromatin structure, gene expression, protein and membrane trafficking, cell signaling and metabolism, embryogenesis, and pathogenesis. Fundamental mechanisms are studied in a variety of model systems, including bacteria, yeast, flies, worms, frogs, mice, and human stem cells. State of the art technologies are employed in these studies, which address both basic and translational issues in biology. The breadth of science combined with the collegial and collaborative environment provide an exciting and interdisciplinary setting in which to conduct research.
