The research mission of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine is to conduct basic and translational research at the highest scientific level. Our faculty members are dedicated to searching for path-breaking scientific discoveries in the areas of cellular and molecular biochemistry through our signature research programs in cancer, hepatobiology, autism and disease centered computational genomics.
The McCormick Genomic and Proteomic Center (MGPC) is a genomic research center at the interface of computational genomics and wet-laboratory within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Our mission is to discover, generate and/or experimentally validate new hypotheses, and unravel key molecular events in normal and diseased cells, while integrating genomic education into our curriculum.
