Biochemistry and Biophysics

Biochemistry is the division of science that examines the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory based science that combines biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can identify and solve biological problems. It comprises of a range of scientific disciplines, including genetics, microbiology, forensics, plant science and medicine. Due of its scope, biochemistry is very important and advances in this field of science over the past 100 years. It’s a very exciting time to be part of this alluring area of study.

Biophysics is necessary to determine the mechanics of how the molecules of life are formed, how different parts of a cell functions, and how complex systems in our bodies like the brain, circulation, immune system, and others work. It is an exciting scientific field where scientists with different specialties such as math, chemistry, physics, engineering, pharmacology, and materials sciences, use their expertise to evaluate and develop new tools for understanding how biology of all life works. Biophysicists are ideally qualified in the quantitative sciences of physics, math, and chemistry and they are able deal with a wide collection of topics, ranging from how nerve cells communicate, to how plant cells capture light and convert it into energy, to how changes in the DNA of healthy cells can stimulate their transformation into cancer cells, to so many other biological problems.
