Through the Centers for Molecular Medicine and our close ties to the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook provides a unique setting for studies in biochemistry and structural biology.

Director's Message
Steven Smith, Ph.D., Director, Graduate Studies

This is an exciting and historical time for the biological sciences. Research in the fields of biochemistry and structural biology promises to lead the way in understanding life on the molecular level. With the recent sequencing of the human genome, the race is on to determine the structure and function of the thousands of protein molecules that drive biological processes. The Program in Biochemistry and Structural Biology (BSB) provides graduate students with the training and tools to determine the structure and address the function and mechanism of proteins, DNA, RNA, membrane lipids and the hundreds of other molecules in cells. A major focus is on how interactions between these molecules regulate cell function. More...

The BSB program was too new to be ranked in the 2010 National Research Council (NRC) survey, the most authoritative survey of graduate programs. However, the sister Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) program, which has many of the same faculty, was rated very highly. Only 17 out of 85 universities rated had programs with higher average R ratings, and only 6 universities had better rankings in the Northeast.
