The student who expects to accept an entry-level position in any area requiring knowledge of biological chemistry, or to do graduate study in biochemistry, other areas of biomedical science (medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, physiology, cell and/or molecular biology, molecular genetics, immunology, microbial physiology, agricultural chemistry/plant science, food science, or human nutrition) may be best served by completing the General Biochemistry Track. The student who intends to continue on to professional study in medicine (human, osteopathic, veterinary), dentistry, or pharmacy (PharmD) may elect to complete either the Program in Biochemistry, Pre-Medical or Pre-Dental track.
