Welcome to Duke Biochemistry!
Biochemists discover the molecular components and detailed molecular mechanisms that underlie biological processes, using an integrated approach that combines chemistry, enzymology, biophysics, structural biology, computational biology, cell biology and genetics. The Duke Biochemistry community includes over 140 researchers who are interested in wide-ranging problems including protein structure/function, nucleic acid biochemistry/genome stability, lipid biosynthesis/membrane function, and enzyme catalysis/regulation.

  • Yuquian Shi (Beese Lab) won the prize for best poster presentation at the joint 44th MidAtlantic crystallography meeting and SER-CAT symposium in 2014. The title of his presentation was "A structural investigation of the human exonuclease I."
  • We are very excited to announce that Professor Hashim Al-Hashimi will be joining the Department of Biochemistry in January 2014.  Professor Al-Hashimi investigates the molecular bases of RNA and DNA function using new NMR spectroscopic techniques.  In 2013 Professor Al-Hashimi was awarded the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science and the Agilent Thought Leader Award.  We welcome Hashim to Duke Biochemistry.
  • Congratulations to Bonnie Cuthbert, Jungki Min and Dr. Mark Mabanglo from the Schumacher, Brennan and Beese Laboratories!  Each won awards for their poster presentations at the 43rd Mid-Atlantic Macromolecular Crystallography Meeting, which was held at Duke from 30 May 1 June, 2013.
  • Congratulations to Jessica Wojtaszek, who has been awarded the Jo Rae Wright Fellowship for Outstanding Women in Science for academic year 2013-2014.
