Why should a biologist know about physics and chemistry? Or physicists and chemists about biology? Just ask some of our faculty who are using x-ray synchrotron radiation science to study proteins, their molecular structures, and the drugs that interact with them. This research may lead to the development of more successful, potent drugs.
Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics (MBB) is an interdisciplinary major, combining biology, chemistry, and physics with innovative experimental techniques.
By studying MBB, you'll discover the essential building blocks of life, how they fit together, how they work, and the physical methods for exploring these building blocks. With its quantitative emphasis and research focus, MBB is a great way to prepare for careers in medicine or medical research.
