BMB Faculty Research and Laboratory Information
Faculty members in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology conduct basic and translational research on the biochemical and molecular bases of disease, with particular emphasis on diseases affecting New Mexico’s population.
Faculty research focuses on three areas: metabolism and metabolic disease, cancer biology and cancer therapeutics and biochemistry education research. Faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and staff from the department collaborate with institutional and state programs, including UNM’s Signature Programs, The Mind Research Network, New Mexico INBRE Program, UNM Cancer Center, the Clinical and Translational Science Center and the Center for Molecular Discovery.
The scope of these research programs extends from in vitro and in cell studies to animal models, translational studies and community-based intervention, all while advancing the state’s health and education with programs at Zuni Pueblo and San Juan College.
