Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI)
The Department of Biochemistry recognizes diversity of identity and experience as a source of strength that promotes excellence, innovation, flexibility, and adaptability in our discipline. We embrace, nurture, value, and celebrate this diversity. Check out our EDI initiatives.

The Dept. of Biochemistry is located on the 3rd floor of the Medical Sciences Building (MSB), which is accessible by outside ramps and automated door openers. Elevators connect all floors of the building. The Dept. also has two single-user, gender-neutral, accessible washrooms.
