Welcome to UNC Biochemistry and Biophysics. We have a vigorous, diverse research program and we are home to UNC Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Aziz Sancar. We are the 4th highest NIH-funded biochemistry department in the nation for 2020. We provide robust educational and research training programs for our graduate students that prepare them for top careers in biochemical and biophysical sciences or related fields. Our Biochemistry Track students can participate in the MiBio training grant, directed by BCBP professor, Dale Ramsden, or other relevant training grants across campus.  Our Biophysics Track students participate in the Molecular and Cellular Biophysics curriculum with an associated training grant co-directed by BCBC professor Brian Kuhlman and Biology professor Kevin Slep. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our researchgraduate program curriculumevents, and dynamic people who make us great!
