Research

Biochemistry research is broadly interdisciplinary, and research laboratory opportunities for biochemistry majors may be found in many departments across the university. Below is a list of research laboratories with a biochemical focus, many of which have already included biochemistry majors in their projects. In addition to the departmental classification, these labs may also be grouped into the eight areas of research focus indicated on the left panel: Cell & Developmental Biology; Computation & Imaging; Engineering Living Cells & Tissues; Environmental Biochemistry & Engineering; Microbial Biotechnology & Drug Development; Molecular Structure & Function; Nanomedical Technologies; and, Stem Cell & Regenerative Biology. Please note that these faculty lists are not exhaustive. If you are interested in joining a research lab, you are encouraged to explore outside of this list as well!
