Biochemistry, the chemistry of life, underpins much of biological, biotechnological and biomedical research today. As a biochemistry major, you will explore the structure and function of molecules in organisms, genomic research with cutting-edge DNA technology, and investigate the cell's proteomes. Biochemists are employed in the rapidly expanding biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, in academic or hospital research centres, as well as in teaching at schools, colleges and universities. A biochemistry degree is also an entry into professional schools in medicine and other health professions, business and law.
