From the Department of Molecular Biosciences

Welcome to the Department of Molecular Biosciences at Northwestern University - otherwise known as Molecular Biosciences! The department is an intellectually enriching research and teaching environment where outstanding faculty work closely with postdoctoral fellows and graduate and undergraduate students to advance our understanding of diverse and complex biological processes. Research in Molecular Biosciences addresses problems not only in the core departmental disciplines of molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology, but also in genetics, developmental biology, structural biology, biophysics, reproductive biology, immunology and virology.
