 VC2: Careers: Biochemistry
Biochemistry is the study of the structure, composition, and chemical reactions of substances in living systems.
Biochemistry emerged as a separate discipline when scientists combined biology with organic, inorganic, or physical chemistry and began to study such topics as how living things obtain energy from food, the chemical basis of heredity, and what fundamental changes occur in disease.
Biochemistry´s  application to other fields and its focus on improving the quality of our lives means that laboratory research is guided by strict guidelines.

 Biochemistry Option at Caltech
Biochemistry has been established as an interdisciplinary program at the interface of biology and chemistry that seeks to understand the chemistry of life.
The basic building block of life is the cell; the intellectual focus of modern biochemistry is to understand how individualparts interact to give cells their wide spectrum of functions.
In particular, biochemistry addresses the principles through which the individual components of cells combine in an orderly self association to produce their form, their function and their dynamic behavior.
