About this course
The Biochemistry master's degree is part of the campus-wide, interdisciplinary Molecular Biosciences graduate program. Students benefit from exposure to faculty members appointed in both the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources (CABNR) and the University of Nevada School of Medicine (UNSOM). The aim of the graduate program is to train scientists for critical analysis and solution of biochemical problems at the molecular level.
The diverse research expertise of our faculty has the common theme of understanding the structures and roles of macromolecules in complex biological systems. Students have an opportunity for multidisciplinary interactions with graduate students and faculty members in related departments, including the departments of agriculture, nutrition, veterinary sciences, biochemistry, biology, physiology and anatomy, microbiology and immunology, and pharmacology and cell biology. The academic environment is lively and highly interactive, as represented by a diverse, interdisciplinary seminar program sponsored in conjunction with other related departments.
