Get your UBC degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, which specifically deals with the structure and function of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids – the basic constituents of living cells. You can choose from one of two program options: General Biochemistry or Medical Biochemistry.
Biochemists work to understand the structure of cells and how they function at the molecular level. They look at the role of these macromolecules in metabolic pathways, how the pathways are controlled, and the consequences of genetic or metabolic disruption. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology can lead to work in mass producing chemicals that are usually found in the body in tiny amounts, mapping the human genetic code, or creating genetically e
