Biochemistry at Illinois has a long tradition of excellence in biochemical research. Many of our undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral research associates have used their experiences at Illinois to establish careers of responsibility in both academia and the private sector.

Our graduating seniors go into medicine and other health related careers, receive their PhD from some of the finest graduate schools in the United States or start out in the pharmaceutical or biotech industries. Please watch this video about our graduates:

I hope that you will take the time to explore our department by investigating our undergraduate and graduate programs so that you can learn about the intellectual opportunities now possible by breakthroughs in this postgenomic era of biology. I also encourage you to learn more about our Biochemistry Faculty and to stay in touch with all our matters of Departmental interest by following us on Facebook and on Twitter. The future of biochemistry has changed, and we believe that our department is well-positioned to provide training for your future.
