Biochemistry includes the sciences of molecular biology, immunochemistry, neurochemistry, and bioinorganic, bioorganic and biophysical chemistry. Biochemistry is applied to medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, food science, agriculture, toxicology and techniques to study the diagnosis and therapy of disease and the assessment of health.

Students who seek bachelor’s degrees in chemistry or biochemistry embark on a thorough, hands-on, laboratory-oriented program at Norwich University.

The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry provides a variety of opportunities for undergraduate research. In addition to required senior laboratory courses, students collaborate with faculty on independent, externally funded projects. They enjoy small class sizes and dedicated faculty members who go out of their way to ensure students get the individual attention and support they need to succeed.

Our graduates are highly desired by industry and government employers for their laboratory skills. They are well prepared to embark on careers in industry, government, education and the military, or for graduate education in chemistry, biochemistry, medicine or law.

Ethan Guth, PhD, Assistant Professor of Chemistry

A recent rise in multi-drug resistant bacteria exposed a need for new antibiotics. Assistant Professor of Chemistry Ethan Guth has been looking at GatCAB, an enzyme that is only found in bacteria. Understanding of this enzyme’s function could lead to the development of new type of antibiotics that work to disrupt biochemical "machinery" in bacteria, rather than simply destroy them.
