Biochemistry & Biophysics


Topics of Study

Biochemistry focuses on chemistry of living systems, such as how molecules interact to form cells and tissues, and chemistry of processes such as metabolism and digestion. Biophysics focuses on application of physics principles to both biochemistry and biophysics, as well as on biological systems at submolecular, molecular, and supramolecular levels, and their influence on biological activity at the cellular, tissue, organ, and organismic levels. You will also study mathematics. All programs are highly interdisciplinary in nature.
