Postgraduate study in Biochemistry at Otago

The Department of Biochemistry is a great place to develop your abilities in creative scientific research. Our world-class research groups offer projects in topics as diverse as the molecular mechanisms of photosynthesis, the structure and function of enzymes, the evolution of embryo development, through to the genetics of cancer. The Department houses skilled staff and cutting-edge facilities to support students' research.

Students also enjoy a collegial and supportive environment. We have weekly seminars where local, national and international speakers present their research, a weekly Journal Club for staff and postgraduate students to present recent papers from the literature, and fortnightly postgraduate colloquia where students present and discuss their research among themselves. Community spirit is further fostered through regular Happy Hour get-togethers.
