Undergraduate program earns national accreditation
Students who are on track to graduate from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine’s Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology now meet or exceed all the curricular recommendations from both the American Chemical Society and the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The program is also consistent with current national recommendations for 21st century educational practices.
Student Scholarly Excellence
Two students majoring in biochemistry -- seniors Jonathan Cordova and Randy Ko -- have been nationally recognized as recipients of the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program for their intent to pursue careers in science, mathematics and engineering.
