Applying to Duke Biochemistry  

Students seeking admission to the Department of Biochemistry must apply to the Graduate School of Duke University.  
Qualified applicants will have strong undergraduate training in the chemical and/or biological sciences. Scores on the Graduate Record Examination General Test are required and it is strongly recommended that scores on a Subject Test in Biology, Chemistry, or Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology be submitted. The application, complete with the letters of recommendation and transcripts, should be submitted before the end of December (Please consult the Graduate School for application deadlines: http://gradschool.duke.edu/admissions/deadlines/index.php). Official GRE  & TOEFL scores may be submitted later if they are not yet available; however, we should receive them as soon as possible. All applications are reviewed by the Biochemistry Admissionís Committee, which is composed of departmental faculty members.  
Students applying to the department can indicate a desire to participate in a University Program such as Structural Biochemistry & Biophysics (SBB), Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) or Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CBB) (See Link Below). Alternatively, a student can directly apply to one of these programs and request affiliation with the Department of Biochemistry.
