The Division of Biochemistry in the Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Houston focuses on the study of the biochemistry and biophysics of living systems. Our research activities are highly inter- and multi-disciplinary which translates into graduate training at the disciplinary interfaces.
Cell and Molecular Biology
Cellular and molecular mechanisms lie at the heart of many biological processes, and the Division of Cell and Molecular Biology encompasses a diverse range of research programs. There are two major areas of emphasis within the division.
Ecology and Evolution
Faculty in the Ecology and Evolution Division have a diverse set of research interests ranging from bioinformatics and molecular evolution to behavioral and community ecology. We participate in cross-division and cross-departmental initiatives focusing on behavior and networks, and interact regularly with Ecology and Evolution faculty at Rice University across town.
