The tradition of excellence in biochemistry and biophysics at The University of Chicago continues today and is rapidly expanding. Our world-class group of professors, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers are making important discoveries at the interface of biology, chemistry, and physics. The interdisciplinary nature of the research being conducted by students in our graduate program is enhanced by our location in the Gordon Center for Integrative Science, which houses research groups from biochemistry, chemistry, physics, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the Ben May Institute for Cancer Research under the same roof. The breadth of our research mirrors the diversity of biological processes, focusing on the molecular basis of biological function at the Ångstrom thru micron length scales using the tools of structural biology, protein engineering, synthetic chemistry, computation and single-molecule biophysics.
Since 1913, the University of Chicago has been continuously accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
