If you are an accepted student please visit us in person on April 4th or 5th at Hokie Focus and ask any questions that you have about our department. We plan to have Biochemistry faculty and current students, along with our undergraduate Peer Mentors, on hand to meet you. Undergraduate students who have been active in research will be available to explain how their research experiences have allowed them to differentiate themselves in a competitive market. You will be able to meet our Academic Advisor, Ms. Amy Rasor, and explore how you can customize your BS degree in Biochemistry to suit your interests. You will also learn about our First Year Experience courses, taught in the New Classroom Building, by Professors Kris Hite and Anne Brown. Our Peer Mentors attend these classes, and every in-coming Biochemistry major is assigned to a Peer Mentor contact who can help you navigate the transition to college.  You can also learn about the chance to earn a certified Bachelor of Science degree from our professional society, the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.


If you have questions about the department of Biochemistry, please email the department head, Dr. Glenda Gillaspy at gillaspy@vt.edu, Ms. Amy Rasor, arasor@vt.edu, or our Undergraduate Program Director, Dr. Jinsong Zhu zhujin@vt.edu.
