About Us


The published Biochemistry Newsletters provide an overview of the department, the recent discoveries at the time of publishing, lab updates, memoriam of past members, etc. They are an excellent way to see what has happened in the department over time.

Our Buildings

The Department of Biochemistry is primarily housed in three buildings that make up the Hector F. DeLuca Biochemical Complex.  These modern, award-winning, interconnected facilities provide an ideal environment for research, education and cooperation.

Our History

The Department of Biochemistry builds on a long tradition of excellence in basic research that has led to important practical advances. A modern department, with emphases in cellular regulation, molecular genetics, protein structure, hormone action, virology, and developmental biology, has been built on this strong historical foundation.
