LMU’s Biochemistry major helps students examine the functions and intricate interactions of the molecules that give rise to the phenomenon of life. This prepares students for careers in the fields of biochemistry and chemical biology.
Biochemistry majors do hands-on work using current techniques of modern chemical and bioengineering instrumentation. LMU’s Organic Research, Instrumentation, and Physical Chemistry laboratories feature tools such as a 300 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, a high performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection, an ultrasensitive differential scanning calorimeter, an ultracentrifuge, and a thermocycler.
