Research

Hannah Valentino (Ph.D. Candidate) and Dr. Pablo Sobrado in lab

Research in the department of Biochemistry is inherently interdisciplinary in nature.

We are involved in generating new tools and knowledge that will advance our understanding of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases, Drug Discovery, Microbiology, Stress Responses in Plants, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, and Type 2 Diabetes. Faculty recruit graduate students from our own Ph.D. and M.S. programs, as well as students from the Microbiology, Translational Plant Sciences, Genetics, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (GBCB) and Translational Medicine and Biomedical Health (TMBH) graduate programs on campus.
