In addition, to accommodate increased need for Biochemistry (Chem 430/L) a new section of this course has also been added! If you are having difficulty registering or have questions about your course schedule for chemistry, please email Tara Sirvent or Sharon Fissette.
Joshua Bixler (’10 Biochemistry Major) was selected as the Vanguard University’s Chemistry Student of the Year for 2010. Josh is a senior who graduated in May 2010. He is planning on matriculating into Graduate school to pursue an advanced degree in Biochemistry so that he can spend his life engaged in biochemical research!
