Welcome to the Graduate Program in Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology! Members of the BCMB faculty conduct research in a diverse range of topics, including computational and experimental analyses of dynamic protein structures and interactions, protein biochemistry, intracellular and receptor protein signaling, organelle physiology, plant growth, transcriptional/chromosomal regulation, and neuronal signaling.
Joint faculty within the program include individuals from UT’s engineering departments, UT Medical Center, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We seek highly motivated graduate students interested in pursuing research/professional careers in these areas. The BCMB Graduate Program includes an initial year of core classes and laboratory research rotations followed by a broad array of more specialized courses. We strive to ensure that students graduate from our program with the research and communication skills necessary for success.
