The Department of Biochemistry has a three-fold mission:
- Undertake research on the molecular basis of diseases that affect humanity.
- Train a new generation of scientists and physicians.
- Provide a collaborative link between other biomedical sciences and more basic sciences, such as chemistry and physics.
The research interests of the faculty are focused in four inter-related areas: signal transduction in cancer and inflammation, nucleic acid metabolism in cancer and inflammation, redox biology and metabolic diseases such as diabetes and atherosclerosis.
Academic Medical Education
Balancing science with compassion, The Bowman Gray Center for Medical Education aims to facilitate collaborative learning and professional development in relevant, real-world contexts.
Biomedical Engineers use engineering principles to improve human health and speak the language of medicine and engineering.
