Advantages of the Concentration

Concentrators have the opportunity to expand their knowledge beyond the traditional fields of Biology and Chemistry while still having a solid grounding in a major discipline. Biochemistry is intimately intertwined with modern avenues of research in Physical, Organic, Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry as well as Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Medical Science, Immunology, Neurobiology, Microbiology and Developmental Biology.

An interdisciplinary persepective will put students at the cutting edge of modern science and will be a very effective preparation for graduate and medical studies, as well as attractive to potential employers in the Bio-Pharma industry.

Plus, you will get to know your fellow concentrators and professors very well, and be assured an opportunity to do research!
