Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics
A Message from the Chair, Jeff Hayes, Ph.D.
The Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics (B&B) strives to understand the molecular mechanisms of important biological processes, thereby providing insight into how disruption of these mechanisms causes disease. Departmental research is generously supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The NIH also has recognized our excellence in the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (BMB) and Biophysics, Structural & Computational Biology (BSCB) Ph.D. programs with a highly competitive interdepartmental T32 graduate training grant. Our commitment to graduate education is apparent from the positions acquired by our previous students and fellows, who are professors at major research universities and leaders in corporate research. Our continued focus is on pioneering research and quality education to ensure our position as a premier Biochemistry & Biophysics department.
