Faculty and Research

The faculty members of the Department of Biochemistry comprise an ideal blend of biochemists, biophysicists, and chemists who collaborate to identify and improve bioactive molecules for such purposes as fighting cancer, parasitic disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders.


The Department’s annual retreat in New Braunfels, Texas, provides a relaxing atmosphere for members to keep up with each others’ work.
