Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (for Medical Science)

Major

The major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will provide you with a thorough understanding of the chemistry of life and the molecules that regulate living processes. This major emphasises how these molecules pass information and energy within and between cells, and from generation to generation, and how these processes impact form and function. This major is ideally suited for students who wish to study fundamental molecular processes that underlie normal physiology and disease in all kingdoms of life. For more information on the program structure and content, view the Science Undergraduate Handbook.

Graduate opportunities

Biochemists work at the forefront of scientific research in organisations which include the food manufacturing industries, biotechnology companies, hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, universities, schools, the pharmaceutical industry, agriculture and research institutes.
