Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
The Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (BMB) Program is designed for students interested in obtaining a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. As such, the program represents a group of faculty that may mentor a student pursuing thesis research toward the Biochemistry Ph.D. Students interested in a Ph.D. in Biochemistry should apply to the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Program for admission to graduate studies at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
We offer in-depth coursework and diverse research opportunities that focus on understanding the biochemical mechanisms of life’s critical molecular processes.
World-class research in our laboratories exposes our students to a variety of the latest methods for sophisticated biochemical analysis, including mass spectrometry, crystallography, microcalorimetry, surface plasmon resonance, microarrays, fluorescence activated cell sorting, light scattering, and spectroscopic methods (including fluorescence lifetime and energy transfer measurements), as well as modern methods for cell culture, protein purification, genetic analysis, and reconstitution of biochemical complexes and reactions.
The flexibility of our training program allows students to train in a number of exciting research areas, and often allows students to develop highly effective interdisciplinary collaborations, resulting in cutting edge thesis projects.
