Welcome

The research interests of our faculty span a broad spectrum of biochemistry ranging from cell and developmental biology to structural biology. The unifying theme defining us is an interest in biological processes at the molecular level. The department is home to state of the art facilities and instruments for X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, fluorescence microscopy, to name just a few. A collaborative and collegial atmosphere makes the Biochemistry Department an ideal place to do science and train for a wide variety of biomedical science careers.

Drs. Volkman and Grayson Identify Protein Linked to Post-Viral Infection Asthma

Feb. 23 - Brian Volkman, PhD and Dr. Mitchell Grayson co-authored a study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry that identified a protein that is linked to the development of post-viral infection asthma. The discovery is the first step in generating a novel type of asthma therapy designed to prevent development of post-viral asthma in young children. Medical Xpress

Protein linked to development of asthma

Feb. 20 - Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) have linked a specific protein to the development of post-viral infection asthma, which is the first step in generating a novel type of asthma therapy designed to prevent development of post-viral asthma in young children.

New genetically modified plants have better drought tolerance

Feb.11 - A team of researchers at the University of California, Riverside (UCR); and the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) has designed genetically-modified plants that can reduce water loss during times of drought, thus helping the plants survive.
