Programmatic Needs

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has witnessed tremendous growth since 2008, driven in large part by the recruitment of nine individuals to its faculty.

Recruitment of faculty is still ongoing, and a major priority continues to be the identification and recruitment of outstanding  faculty at the assistant professor level.

Faculty recruitment provides an ideal opportunity for the Department to reaffirm its role and mission, and to add to its expertise in research areas of particular significance to 21st century public health challenges.

Our faculty is under constant pressure to “explore and discover” new biology paradigms in the context of a very competitive and rather rigid funding system. Access to unrestricted funds enables our faculty and their students and fellows to explore novel avenues of research, set up relevant collaborations, and/or have access to new services and instrumentation.

From a programmatic standpoint, we have identified the following strategically important research areas in need of support. They are:

Gifts towards supporting and enhancing BMB programs can be targeted as follows:
