Faculty Hosting Undergraduate Research Students

Biochemistry at Binghamton is a program, not a department, so faculty who can host students are from different departments. Biochemistry students can work in biology or chemistry labs, and have also worked in two anthropology labs. Labs related to biochemistry are listed below. In order to do an honors thesis, your work must relate to biochemistry in some way.
