The mission of the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry is to carry out world class research that addresses molecular mechanisms of biological processes, particularly as it relates to human disease, and to disseminate that knowledge through teaching and training of future scientists, physicians, and health science professionals. The advancement and transmission of knowledge is part of the broader mission of the School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) and the University. Additionally, BMC faculty members provide service and expert advice to the SMPH and other units of the University, and the state, nation, and world. In its research, teaching, service, and outreach efforts alike, BMC is committed to building a community that is open to and accepting of all.

Our PhD Program: Integrated Program in Biochemistry (IPiB)

IPiB is a world-class graduate program jointly administered by the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry (part of the School of Medicine and Public Health) and the Department of Biochemistry (part of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences).

About Us

For nearly 100 years, the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry has excelled in research, teaching and service. Our research programs are at the forefront of biochemical research, integrating fundamental molecular mechanisms with human disease.
