Our Chemistry professors guide students in independent biochemistry research opportunities with the goal of publishing their findings in international, peer-reviewed science journals.
The Chemistry Department now offers students the opportunity to graduate with an American Chemical Society (ACS)-certified Biochemistry degree, to prepare students to become future leaders in biochemical research and science.
Dr. Amanda Hughes (Biochemistry professor) re-designed a biochemistry lab to feature a semester-long experiment where students generate a plasmid carrying the gene of a target enzyme, and perform in vitro kinetic assays.
