The curriculum of the Chemical Biology Option is structured so that in completing the Option, students also complete the course requirements for the regular graduate programs in their home departments. For this reason, program requirements are listed separately below for each department, even though the 'core' content in Chemical Biology (9 lecture credits plus 2 or 4 seminar credits for each program) is the same for each.
See course requirements for the Chemical Biology option:
The Chemical Biology Option is offered by three departments: Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Pharmacology and Therapeutics.
What is Chemical Biology?
Chemical Biology can be defined as the design or identification and the exploitation of novel small molecules as tools to investigate questions in biology.
