Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

The biochemistry and molecular biology (BMB) program is interdisciplinary, reflecting the complex modern study of life at the cellular level. Drawing on chemistry, biology and mathematics, the program allows students to use the resources and perspectives of multiple disciplines, reflecting the collaborative nature of current scientific research. The BMB program follows the guidelines specified by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB). Graduates of this program are well prepared to enter professional schools, such as medical, dental and veterinary schools, as well as graduate programs in biochemistry, molecular biology and other related disciplines, and to enter careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology
