Biochemistry - Study programme

Fields of study

Brief description of the programme

The purpose of the doctoral program in Biochemistry is the preparation of scholars with the highest degree of education for creative work in all branches of biochemistry. The independent status of the Biochemistry program reflects the position of contemporary biochemistry as a separate multi-disciplinary field at the interface between chemistry, biology, and physics. The program is further broken down into two fields depending on emphasis: functional (the field of Biochemistry), and structural (the field of Biomolecular Chemistry). The reasons for this division are mainly practical, stemming from the differences in methodological approach to studying the functions and structures of living organisms at a molecular level. Because of the broadness of the concept of biochemistry, its division into fields allows for deeper specialization in preparing students for practice. Both fields offer a deepening and broadening of theoretical education, and an opportunity to acquire practical skills and experience. The personnel and technical facilities of the department allow students to gain experience in both in basic theoretical and experimental research, as well as in medical, veterinary, industrial, environmental, and other applications.
