The BioChem Family
From the appointment in the early 1900's of Victor C. Vaughan as the first professor of biochemistry to our current roster of faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows, the BioChem family is a large and distinguished group. We are knit together by our friendships, sense of shared community and history, and a common passion for the discovery of new knowledge at the frontiers of biological chemistry. On these pages, alumni and friends of the department â€“ essential and valued members of the BioChem family â€“ will find information and resources that will help them stay connected with the department and contribute to its ongoing vitality. We're glad you stopped by!
