Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY, CELL BIOLOGY, DISEASE MECHANISMS

PEOPLE: We are a highly interactive group of faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows with diverse research interests in biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and genetics. We use cutting-edge technologies and experimental systems to address the cellular and molecular mechanisms of biological processes, particularly those that relate broadly to human disease.

RESEARCH: Research themes include Neuroscience & Aging; Signal Transduction & Cancer; ECM/Cellular Injury; Metabolism, Obesity/Diabetes; Proteomics, Glycomics & Lipidomics; and Development.

GRADUATE STUDY: We are committed to the education of graduate, medical, and dental students. The emphasis of our graduate program is on comprehensive research training in our faculty members’ laboratories. Prospective students can apply to our new interdisciplinary umbrella program called Program in Biomedical Sciences administered through Graduate Medical Sciences.

Spotlight on Research…Misfolded Mystery

Spotlight on…Faculty Recuitment

As part of an ongoing expansion program, the Department of Biochemistry at the Boston University School of Medicine invites applications for new faculty positions at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. We seek creative scientists using cutting-edge technologies and experimental systems to address the cellular and molecular mechanisms of biological processes, particularly those that relate broadly to human disease.
