Faculty Research Sponsors

Biochemistry research is broadly interdisciplinary, and research laboratory opportunities for biochemistry majors may be found in many departments outside of Biology and Chemistry. Below is a list of research laboratories that have actively engaged biochemistry majors in the past. However, this list is not exhaustive, and if you are interested in joining a research lab, you are encouraged to explore outside of this list as well!
