General Exam

The General Examination is completed by all doctoral students during Spring of the second year. The examination involves writing and orally defending a research proposal. The guidelines are updated each year so please consult the PhD Student Handbook for the current version.

Dissertation and Thesis Guidelines

The Graduate College guidelines for preparation and submission of a doctoral dissertation or master's thesis must be followed. The Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Graduate Programs encourages using published manuscripts as part of the dissertation, but these must be formatted according to the Graduate College Guidelines and permission must be obtained from the copyright holder (usually the journal publisher). On the title page of a manuscript that has been  published, there needs to be a statement of the degree candidate's contribution to the paper (e.g. "Chen Brown was responsible for all the experiments and results except Figure 4 and Table 3" ).

Student Awards

Biochemistry & Molecular Biology awards include Travel Awards to attend conferences or to carry out experiments in a distant laboratory, and the BMB Student Research Award.

Graduate Courses

Fall 2018 Class Schedule

First Year Fall and Spring classes (GPiBS and Departments)

Second and later year courses and research hours

BIOC 6221 Journal Club - Dr Augen Pioszak

  • Discussion and assessment of papers in the scientific literature related to Biochemistry and Molecular, Cell and Structural Biology.

BIOC 6210 Physical Biochemistry of Macromolecules - Dr Karla Rodgers

  • This advanced course will approach the structure and function of biological macromolecules from a multidisciplinary perspective encompassing structure determination to physical characterization of inter- and intra-molecular interactions. This class may be taken for 2 or 4 credits, depending on the depth that students wish to experience the different topics.

BIOC 6970 BIotechnology - Dr Paul DeAngelis

  • The Biotechnology course will: (a) provide information on current and future scientific developments; (b) review current regulation of biotechnology and applications as well as; (c) provide exposure to legal, business, and ethical issues generated by biotechnology. The discussion-based class will utilize participation and a student-designed project as learning tools.

Professional Courses

College of Dentistry

  • BIOCD 7194 Biochemistry - Dr Guangpu Li
    A survey of biochemistry for students in the health related professions covering the structure and function biomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates), metabolism, molecular genetics, membrane organization, transmembrane signaling, and additional topics of specific interest.
  • BIOCD 7291 Dental BIochemistry - Dr Martin Levine
    Discuss current knowledge of saliva, periodontal disease, dental caries and fluoride metabolism. Prepare students through intense dental biochemistry topics, for National Board examinations.

College of Medicine

  • INDT 8148 Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutritional Biochemistry - Dr Ann Louise Olson
    This course will teach the concepts of endocrinology metabolism and nutritional biochemistry at the molecular, cellular and systemic levels. The goal of the course is to integrate basic principles of metabolism and nutrition with clinical problems in metabolic disorders.
  • INDT 8108 Molecular and Cellular Systems - Dr Paul DeAngelis
    This course introduces foundational concepts of human genetics, molecular biology, protein structure/function, cell biology, carcinogenesis and early development. The goal is to provide an integrated overview of molecular and cellular organization with respect to health and disease using didactic lectures, small-group sessions, clinical correlations, and self-directed learning.
  • INDT 8303 Design and Analysis of Clinical Research - Dr Ann Louise Olson
    This course will prepare the student to understand principles of biostatistics and epidemiology. Topics will include research design; statistical and epidemiologic measures of disease burden, distribution, and association; and methods of statistical inference and hypothesis testing. Critical review of public health and biomedical literature will be stressed.

College of Pharmacy

  • PHAR 7104 Biochemistry - Dr Guangpu Li
    A survey of biochemistry for students in the health related professions covering the structure and function biomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates), metabolism, molecular genetics, membrane organization, transmembrane signaling, and additional topics of specific interest.
