As our understanding of the molecular basis of life increases, the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology are rapidly expanding. From the science of DNA to the ethics of genetic engineering, our program immerses students in the intricacies of this fascinating scientific discipline.
With a focus on experiential learning and project-based lab work, a major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Lewis & Clark is all about ‘doing science.’ Opportunities for collaborative work are everywhere; most seniors collaborate with faculty members, receiving invaluable one-on-one mentoring in the practice of data analysis and experimental design. Recent Biochemistry and Molecular Biology students have presented at the American Society of Cell Biology national meeting, and have published research and findings in Developmental Neurobiology and Genetics.
Administered jointly by the Biology and Chemistry departments, the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major is interdisciplinary; it draws from physics, chemistry, biology, and math. The program prepares students for careers in biochemical and biomedical research, biotechnology, and genetic engineering, and is ideal for students planning to go on to graduate programs in biochemistry, genetics, and cell or molecular biology and medical, dental, or veterinary schools.
Students who choose this challenging program develop critical thinking skills, great oral and written communication skills, and a deep understanding of many of science’s most fundamental questions.
