Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Pharmacology
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at NYU Langone Health has a rich and distinguished history and maintains active research programs in epigenetics, genome integrity, protein degradation, cell cycle control, drug design, and cancer biology.
Research interests in the department include single-molecule and crystallographic investigations of protein macromolecules, analysis of the molecular basis of cell division, and the elucidation of the cellular signaling pathways involved in growth control and DNA repair. In the following videos, faculty members in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology highlight the innovative research taking place in their labs.
Our faculty have received an average of $22.5 million in funding each year for the past 5 years. This funding comes from an array of federal and private sources, including the National Institutes of Health, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the American Cancer Society, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the New York State Department of Health.
Danny Reinberg, PhD, has received a Making Headway Foundation St. Baldrick’s Research Grant, which supports research on new treatments for children with brain and spinal cord tumors.
