Overview

We offer a Biochemistry phd degree at The University of Iowa. The faculty supervise post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduates in active research programs that are well supported by grants from the NIH, NSF, ACS, AHA, and other agencies.

Key Features 

  • Students with a bachelor's degree in any of the biological, biochemical engineering, or physical sciences who have a strong desire to pursue a research-oriented career in biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics, and/or cell biology are encouraged to apply.

Programme Structure

  • For 35 years, Biochemistry functioned as a division of Chemistry and/or Internal Medicine, but was organized as a Department of the College of Medicine in 1948. 
  • Today, the Department of Biochemistry is one of five basic science departments in the Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine at The University of Iowa. 
  • Excellent research facilities and a research-oriented faculty allow our department to offer broadly based programs of undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate study.
