Go Beyond the Classroom

  • We offer a unique opportunity to combine classroom theory with practical experience by connecting students with the ability to conduct research alongside faculty, in some cases as early as sophomore year.
  • Students can expect to conduct work on ongoing research projects including biochemical studies of parasitic diseases to develop new antimicrobial and therapeutic agents to combat disease by opportunistic infections of AIDS patients, sexually transmitted diseases, malaria, and East African sleeping sickness.
  • Before graduation, students have the opportunity to present their research at national and international conferences and publish their findings in leading peer-reviewed journals.

External Approvals and Accreditations

The Chemistry program on the New York City Campus carries for more than 40 years the approval of the Committee for Professional Training of the American Chemical Society (ACS). Our graduating students with a BS in Biochemistry receive the ACS Certification. In addition, the BS in Biochemistry of our Department is accredited by the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB).

Add Opportunities and Experiences
