Admission process

Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry

In Biochemistry at McGill you will join research teams carrying out exciting, innovative science. The Department's 30 full time members are complemented by another 30 adjunct and associate members. They have made ground breaking discoveries, from identifying the gene that causes spina bifida to documenting complex processes goveringing the regulation of protein synthesis to tracking gene expression in breast cancer development.

About Us

What is biochemistry?

Biochemistry is the application of chemistry to the study of biological processes at the cellular and molecular level. It emerged as a distinct discipline around the beginning of the 20th century when scientists combined chemistry, physiology and biology to investigate the chemistry of living systems.
