Welcome to Biochemistry and Structural Biology at UABThe Biochemistry and Structural Biology (BSB) program trains students to design and execute
experiments to answer mechanistic questions in a broad range of disciplines. Three research
areas are emphasized:
(1) Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics
(2) Stem Cell Biology and
(3) Structural Biology
Faculty in each of these areas are dedicated to training students to become critical, independent thinkers who design and execute cutting edge experiments that answer critical biomedical questions in biomedical science. BSB students publish papers in the highest quality, peer-reviewed journals and successfully compete for postdoctoral positions at other premier academic institutions and companies around the world. The close interactions between basic and clinical scientists in the program and throughout the UAB Medical Center provides unique opportunities to develop new therapies for inherited and acquired human disorders.
