The Biochemistry Program is located in the Wold Center, a state of the art building that opened in 2011

The program is housed in a lab suite containing a teaching lab for upper level biochemistry courses, four student-faculty research labs, and associated instrument spaces. Faculty offices are nearby in a suite that also contains a meeting room and study space for students. All of this adjoins the Wold Center Atrium, a space with abundant natural light that is popular for studying that features a coffee bar. Additional facilities are located in the Science and Engineering Center that contains all of the science and engineering departments, facilitating collaboration.
