Biochemistry Concentration

Haverford’s biochemistry program is located at the interface between the biological, chemical, and physical sciences. For our ambitious students and faculty who seek to understand biological processes from physical and chemical points of view, this is an especially exciting place to be.

The 2015 "Biochemistry Superlab" course was the subject of a recent PLOS Biology paper co-authored by all of the class' 16 students and its co-teachers, Professor Rob Fairman (center) and Assistant Professor Lou Charkoudian (third from right). Students from across the sciences take the class—with preference given to biochemistry concentrators—and professors from the Departments of Biology and Chemistry team-teach it, addressing interdisciplinary interests.
