Loras Biochemistry Program Earns ASBMB Accreditation

The Loras College Biochemistry program has earned full accreditation from the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) for the maximum seven-year period. In approving the accreditation, ASBMB cited the level of access Loras provides undergraduates to major research instrumentation, its requirement of a research thesis and its strong assessment strategies.

The ASBMB honor is helpful to the program’s undergraduates applying to graduate school. With accreditation, students in the program are eligible to sit for the ASBMB certification exam, which provides them the opportunity to demonstrate their competitiveness with peers from across the nation.The chemistry program currently comprises three majors (chemistry, biochemistry, and chemistry for secondary education) and is part of the Division of Molecular, Life and Health Sciences, which includes biology and kinesiology along with master’s programs in athletic training and biomedical sciences.
