Our Community

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Decolonization (EDID)

The Dept. of Biochemistry recognizes and values equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) principles across all aspects of its functioning. We are also committed to promoting decolonization (D) within our teaching. Check out our EDID 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 located across from MSB 346.
