Welcome to the Discipline of Biochemistry
Welcome to NUI Galway’s Discipline of Biochemistry. We are committed to continuing our Discipline’s rich tradition of teaching, research and innovation in Biochemistry. Our Discipline was established 50 years ago and is one of the most active in Ireland. Our mission is to provide excellence in teaching and learning and in our research.
Biochemistry is the study of life at the molecular level and we are actively involved in internationally leading research. You may explore our Research to learn more about the exciting research that is taking place in the Discipline, in solving problems in areas such as cellular stress and cancer, genetic variation and risk of disease and DNA damage responses.
