Our faculty, students and fellows are providing paradigm shifting advances at the cutting edge of science and medicine. We embrace a culture of transdisciplinary partnerships that transcend traditional boundaries in undergraduate, graduate and medical teaching and in pursuit of research through collaborative team approaches that combine biochemical, molecular, cellular, in vivo genetic, epigenetic, genomic, proteomic and bioinformatic strategies.


Each faculty member in UVM’s Department of Biochemistry explores very different questions using a wide variety of approaches, systems, and techniques. Nevertheless, what brings us together is our mutual interest in understanding fundamental biological questions at a molecular level. Learn more >>


The goal of the Biochemistry Graduate Program at the University of Vermont is to prepare students for careers in science as both researchers and educators. We accomplish this by expanding their knowledge of both chemistry and biochemistry, while cultivating their ability for critical analysis, creativity and independent study.

With the publication of the Human Genome and other discoveries describing the molecular basis of life, tremendous opportunities await students with the right background and training. Biochemists study the molecular interactions that guide many processes involved in living organisms. Learn more >>
