Overview
Description

Students will study how living organisms are built upon the complex interplay of biological pathways. An emphasis is placed on knowledge gained through research on cell-free experimental systems (Biochemistry) and within cells (Cell Biology). The early curriculum is broad-based and teaches students the fundamental concepts and principles of Biochemistry and Cell Biology. This will enable students to explore and develop their own interests in various aspects of modern molecular life sciences. As they progress through the program, they will take more advanced and specialized elective courses. BCB students will also have the option of engaging in intensive practical training and research opportunities.
