Learning Biochemistry

Studying biochemistry puts you in the edge between fundamental (chemical) sciences and health sciences. You are able to tackle the most basic, molecular and structural problems and apply your scientific breakthroughs into a biological context, with the ultimate goal of providing healthcare workers new tools to diagnose and treat patients. You will have the chance to work in a wide range of environments including Research centres, Universities, Hospitals, Pharmaceutical Industry, among many others. With this theoretical and practical knowledge, you will contribute to provide science-based information to your community, increasing the awareness for the need of science sound (in)formation.
