The Ohio State Biochemistry Program (OSBP) is an interdisciplinary graduate program that trains students to investigate the biochemical basis of life and disease. In the program, students earn a PhD in Biochemistry after conducting original research in world-class laboratories. OSBP has about 100 preceptors to choose from in Arts & Sciences, Medicine, Engineering, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, and Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.

Major areas of research include:

  • Chemical biology and enzymology
  • Molecular basis of disease
  • Molecular biology and molecular genetics
  • Molecular biophysics and structural biology

The training of our students ranges from basic physical biochemistry, structural biology and molecular genetics, through designing treatments for disease. Our students learn theoretical and practical aspects of biochemistry, gain skills in presenting their research, attend national and international scientific conferences, and participate in a seminar series with world-renowned speakers.
