Chatham University Biochemistry

Biochemistry is the science that examines the function and structure of the molecules important to living organisms. It bridges the disciplines of chemistry and biology, using the theories and protocols of each to better understand the world within and around us.

At Chatham, this major is designed for students who are planning graduate work in biochemistry or molecular biology, who wish to seek jobs in biotechnology, or who are applying to medical, dental or veterinary schools. The biochemistry curriculum is ideal for students who are planning graduate work in biochemistry or molecular biology, or seeking jobs in biotechnology.

Chatham has started a new program in cooperation with Duquesne University. In five years, a student can obtain a B. S. in Biochemistry from Chatham and a M.S. in Forensics Science and Law from Duquesne. Please contact Dr. Viehland (viehland@chatham.edu) for more information.
