biochem current side2Biochemistry is the study of life at the molecular level. Throughout recent history, advances made through biochemical research have led to key developments in medicine and have engendered successes in biomedical engineering. It is now a uniquely exciting time to be considering a career in Biochemistry, because genomics methods and groundbreaking technological advances in microscopy and other areas are pushing biochemical research forward at a staggering pace. Biochemists at UT are using state-of-the-art chemical, physical, and computational tools and approaches to obtain a fundamental understanding of the molecular processes that underlie life, sustain and improve the natural environment, and promote the development of more effective treatments for human diseases.
