Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
The Verna and Marrs McLean Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is a center for research in the life sciences at Baylor College of Medicine. Our growing department is home to 52 faculty and associated faculty, 61 graduate students, 40 postdoctoral fellows and numerous technical and administrative staff.
This dynamic research community has associated faculty in the departments of Molecular and Human Genetics, Virology and Microbiology, Medicine, Molecular Physiology and Biophysics as well as Neuroscience.
National Center for Macromolecular Imaging, Functional Genomics of Dictyostelium as well as the newly established Cell-Based Assay Screening Service Facility. We are in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, allowing us to be a vital part of regional collaborations such as The W.M. Keck Center for Interdisciplinary Bioscience Training.
Thanks to our graduate program and extensive resources, our graduate students are at the forefront of scientific discovery—from structure at the molecular level to systems biology and transgenics. Backed by well-equipped labs and supportive faculty our graduate students are preparing for success in research, education and industry.
