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 5th highest NIH funded biochemistry department in the country for 2019. We provide robust educational and research training programs for our graduate students that prepares 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, Wolfgang Bergmeier, or other relevant training grants across campus. Our Biophysics Track students participate in the Molecular and Cellular Biophysics curriculum with 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 research, graduate program curriculum, events and dynamic people who make us great!
