About

Biochemistry is the study of biological molecules, their roles in the cell, and the chemistry of their reactions in living systems. This master degree is offered by the University of Wisconsin Madison. 

Overview

The Integrated Program in Biochemistry (IPiB) , offered by the University of Wisconsin Madison, is the merged graduate program between the Department of Biochemistry (in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences) and the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry (in the School of Medicine and Public Health). The program trains the next generation of biochemists and prepares them for 21st century challenges in science. IPiB offers a Ph.D. degree with a major in biochemistry. Although an M.S. degree is officially offered, students are not admitted for a terminal master's degree.

From atoms and cells to plants and animals, biochemistry research in IPiB is at the forefront of modern science. We are home to around 100 graduate students and 54 world-class faculty pursuing cutting-edge research in all areas of biochemistry, including: cell and developmental biology, chemical biology, endocrinology, enzymology, immunology, metabolism, molecular genetics, molecular medicine, physical biochemistry and biophysics, quantitative biology, structural biology, systems and synthetic biology, and virology. The Program teaches critical thinking skills, applicable to a wide range of professional fields that students pursue after graduation.
