Biochemistry is the study of biological molecules, their roles in the cell, and the chemistry of their reactions in living systems. The goal of the Integrated Program in Biochemistry (IPiB) is to train the next generation of biochemists and prepare them for 21st Century challenges in science.
From atoms to cells to plants and animals, biochemistry research in IPiB is at the forefront of modern science. IPiB is a merged graduate training program from the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Biochemistry and the Department of Biomolecular Chemistry. We are home to around 100 graduate students and 45 world-class faculty pursuing cutting-edge research in all areas of biochemistry.
The size and breadth of the IPiB graduate program provide unique opportunities for graduate students wanting to pursue a degree in one of the top graduate programs in biochemistry in the nation. Our modern facilities are filled with labs carrying out groundbreaking research in a collaborative, friendly, and inspirational atmosphere. Welcome to the IPiB program and we hope that you can share our enthusiasm for the biochemical sciences!
