About the Division:

Chemistry and biology are steadily merging, and it is at the interface that exciting research occurs, in particular relevant to human health and therapeutics. It is clear that biochemical research will focus increasingly on complex, interdisciplinary questions including how small molecules and biomolecules interact. Students in the biochemistry division receive a background in all branches of chemistry as well as a strong knowledge of biochemistry and molecular biology. Our proximity and interactions with colleagues in our department and throughout the UF campus allow for a cohesive and comprehensive approach to biochemistry that makes for a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Faculty in the division share the belief that a strong chemical background provides a solid foundation for a career in biological chemistry research. These beliefs guide the design of the courses offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and in the procedures by which graduate students earn their Ph.D.
