Training in the Department

 

The relatively small size of our department provides an atmosphere of collegiality and accessibility. At the same time, close contacts and collaborations with other very strong departments on campus provide a breadth of expertise and experience of which we take full advantage.
In addition to their research, our faculty teach both graduate and medical students.  As of March 2016, we had 38 graduate students and 33 postdocs distributed amongst our departmental research laboratories.  Our research trainees receive a solid grounding in the fundamentals of chemistry, biology and biochemistry, and experience with contemporary approaches to problems of significant current interest. Graduates of our program have had good success in finding outstanding opportunities for additional training and/or professional development.

 

Undergraduate

The Biochemistry Department does not offer an undergraduate program. Students interested in bachelor’s or master’s degrees should contact:

Graduate

We recruit doctoral graduate students through two interdisciplinary programs, one in molecular biology and one in biological chemistry. Information about these two programs, and how to apply, can be found at the Biosciences Graduate Studies website. Apply directly to one of these programs. After you have been accepted, they will assist with admission to the University of Utah Graduate School.

Biochemistry Research in Progress

Two of our trainees present their current research to the whole department each week.  Held every Thursday at 1 PM in the Emma Eccles Jones Medical Research Building, Kjeldsberg Conference Room (room 1200), these meetings give researchers a chance to receive valuable feedback from faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in the department.

The latest RIP schedule can be found on the Biochem Calendar in Pulse.
