Biochemistry examines the relationship of chemistry to living organisms. Today, biochemists are in high demand; modern healthcare relies on their discoveries to treat patients with ever-improving medicines.
Students in the biochemistry program explore the structure and function of cellular components–proteins, lipids and other biomolecules. Trinity’s experienced biochemistry professors explain techniques for studying these molecules, such as chromatography and electron microscopy. Through hands-on experiments, students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for success in fields where women are still underrepresented, including genetics, molecular biology, agriculture and medicine.
Students study biochemistry at Trinity as a major, minor, or as elective courses.
