The interdisciplinary biochemistry and molecular biology program provides students with a rigorous training in biology and chemistry. The curriculum is built around a core series of courses covering structural and metabolic biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, cell biology and inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. These courses provide hands on training in posing hypotheses, designing experiments to test them, and data analysis. A diversity of elective courses are offered including medicinal organic chemistry, developmental biology, neurobiology, and immunology to let students specialize and pursue their individual interests.
