The Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology located in the Faculty of Medicine offers graduate programs leading to the master’s (MSc) and doctoral (PhD) degrees in Biochemistry.

The programs prepare candidates for a variety of careers in teaching and research both within and outside of academia. Graduate students are actively involved in laboratory research, course work, and presentation of research seminars. Thus, they acquire autonomy in conducting research and in preparing publications. The programs create a stimulating and challenging environment which will allow students to achieve excellence in research. Graduates of the programs must demonstrate research skills and credibility as professionals in their area of research.

Members of the Department are involved in three main research fields: general biochemistry, molecular biology, and, nutrition and metabolism.

The doctoral program participates in the Combined MD / PhD Program, which allows students to graduate with both a PhD in Biochemistry and an MD.
