The synergy between our educational programs and our nationally recognized strengths in biomolecular structure and function, molecular genetics, and cell biology is the essential element in our quest to improve the quality of life through teaching and research.

Modern biological and chemical research is a complex effort, aided at the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences (SBC) by the availability of state-of-the-art facilities and a highly-skilled technical staff for the analysis and interpretation of experimental results. We have a large number of central facilities equipped for modern research and located in the Biological Sciences/Spencer Chemistry building complex.

Our research faculty continue to gain national and international attention by performing cutting edge, scientific research that leads to real-world applications. SBC facilitates mentorship while still producing renowned research across various disciplines.
