Biographical / Historical
The Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology conducts exciting research in emerging bioscience fields, educates graduate and undergraduate students, and communicates advances in these fields to the scientific community and beyond. Particular fields recognized among faculty pursuits include biochemistry, metabolic engineering, biophysics, structural biology, microbiology, molecular genetics, neurobiology, developmental biology, plant biology, and signal transduction, among other areas. The breadth of the program enables graduate students to have a wide spectrum of topics available when choosing their area of concentration and affords undergraduates ample opportunity to explore their individual interests in research. Cooperation with a number of centers and specialized training programs at Rice and the TMC further enrich the academic environment. Innovative teaching and mentoring programs have established a culture emphasizing quality and communication skills that has achieved greater impact through outreach programs that promote bioscience education.
