Department of Chemistry
Biochemistry Division


Biochemistry can be thought of as the study of the chemistry of life.  This discipline applies the concepts and tools of chemistry to the investigation of the structure and properties of molecules found in living organisms.  The members of our division are particularly interested in how the structure of proteins is related to their normal function and participation in disease.
