The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology doctoral program is designed to provide a more comprehensive knowledge of the biochemistry and molecular biology of living organisms and includes the research and training experience necessary for the development of independent investigators. A wide selection of research opportunities exists in the department in various areas of biochemistry and molecular biology, including DNA replication, gene regulation, cell-cell communications, structural biology, receptor endocytosis & protein trafficking, nutrition, enzymology, endocrinology, and metabolism (protein, lipid, and carbohydrate).
