Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry
and Molecular Biology
Located within the University of Texas Medical Branch, our department is home to a broad spectrum of research activities and expertise. We believe that teaching and research are interdependent activities, and so give high priority to the education of our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and to the creation of new and important knowledge in our laboratories. In both of these missions, teaching and research, we value quality above all else.
