The Department of Biomolecular Chemistry represents the discipline of biochemistry within the School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our medical school is fully integrated within this large and diverse public university, fostering collaborations among faculty in diverse areas of biomedical science.

The faculty members in our department cover a wide range of research questions and approaches. For example, fundamental mechanisms in biology are being addressed using model organisms including E.coli, S. cerevisiae, D. melanogaster, X. laevis, and C. elegans. State-of-the-art technologies relevant to enzymology, structural biology, mass spectrometry, and genomic and computational sciences are being used to study both basic and translational issues in biology. Research topics addressed include protein trafficking, pathogenesis, translational control, signaling, chromatin structure, transcription and DNA replication. The breadth of science combined with the collegial and collaborative environment provides an exciting and interdisciplinary environment in which to conduct research.
