The Graduate Program in Biochemistry is part of a large, diverse, and highly interactive community of biological scientists that form the Graduate Program in Molecular Biosciences at Rutgers University.


This consortium is currently made up of five graduate programs and functions to coordinate the recruitment, admissions, and first year core curriculum of Ph.D. students, as well as helping our students in selecting Ph.D. research advisers from among the more than 200 faculty members on campus.

The Biochemistry program from Rutgers University, currently has approximately 100 faculty members from a number of departments in the two universities. Faculty research spans a wide variety of topics, including: DNA replication and transcription, virus gene expression, tumor biology, structural biochemistry, signal transduction and molecular targeting, protein chemistry and enzymology. Additional or alternative studies are designed to meet individual needs. Thus graduate students have the opportunity to select additional study areas in their work.
