Welcome to the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry!

For over 90 years, the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry in the School of Medicine and Public Health has excelled in research, teaching and service. Located in the vibrant and contemporary Hector F. DeLuca Biochemical Sciences Complex on Henry Mall, our research programs are at the forefront of biochemical research, integrating fundamental molecular mechanisms with human disease. Our key strengths in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genomics and Development make us a nexus for collaborative studies between basic scientists and clinicians. The environment is highly interdisciplinary, not only within our department but across the entire UW-Madison campus. Please browse the following pages to find out more about our latest news, the ongoing research of our talented faculty, information about our exceptional graduate students and PhD program (Integrated Program in Biochemistry), alumni support opportunities, and contact information for any questions you might have. We invite you to stop by to tour our outstanding facilities and meet our faculty, staff and students.
