The science of life is intricately tied to the flow of chemical energy. As a biochemist, you’ll dive into that world through research—discovering ways to maintain life and advancing new methods to save it.  At SVSU, our biochemistry program and professors offer an education like no other. Here, you’ll gain confidence in laboratory skills, and you’ll learn from the success and failures of conducting your own research. Here, you’ll conduct experiments, track progress and present findings—not only at the regional level, but also on the national stage. Because at SVSU, the study of life is also a study of you and your passions. And our faculty fully support you reaching your goals—be they medical, research or teaching oriented.
