Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics

Visit Organization Website

The Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Oregon State began in 1967 through a merging of biochemists, primarily from the Chemistry Department, with biophysicists from the then Department of General Science.

Our faculty's active research programs provide research training for both undergraduates and graduate students. With about 250 majors enrolled, we offer the only undergraduate program in Oregon leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry & Biophysics and also offer a degree program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. In addition, we offer a complete graduate curriculum with about 30 students enrolled in Ph.D and Master's degree programs

If there is one word that best characterizes the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Oregon State University today, that word is interdependence. In both our teaching and research, we put ourselves at the service of biologists all over campus, in Agriculture, Forestry, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Nutrition, and other applied sciences. At the same time we draw strength from students and colleagues from other departments, colleges, and centers.
