Patricia Dos Santos is the Director of Graduate Studies in the Chemistry department. She received the University’s Award for Excellence in Research in 2013.

We are experiencing a very exciting moment in microbial biochemistry. The recent advances in genome sequencing and rapid progress of microbiome projects have led investigators to start uncovering the amazing diversity of bacteria across different environments. We have grasped just a small fraction of the importance of microbes in human health.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Major Website

This interdisciplinary major, jointly offered by the Departments of Biology and Chemistry, provides a strong foundation in biological chemistry and molecular biology, and related topics at the interface of these two disciplines. The major is designed to build conceptual understanding and practical and critical thinking skills to address current biological, biochemical, and biomedical challenges. A required research experience, culminating in a senior project, will give students strong experimental skills and provide insight into the experimental approaches and results that demonstrate the function of biological molecules.
