Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Pharmacology Faculty

Our faculty are dedicated researchers and mentors.

NYU Langone’s Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology includes faculty with primary, secondary, emeritus, and adjunct appointments. Our faculty are equally invested in leading groundbreaking research projects and mentoring a new generation of scientists in molecular pharmacology and drug discovery.

Our research laboratories are located primarily at 450 East 29th Street and 522 First Avenue, but we also have labs in adjacent buildings and on NYU’s Washington Square campus.
