Welcome message from Chairperson

Thaned_K

        Thank you for your interest in the Department of Biochemistry (SCBC) at the Faculty of Science, Mahidol University. As home to the first graduate program in biochemistry and molecular biology in Thailand, we have a long history of offering intensive training programs for over 50 years and have produced more than 100 Ph.D. and 400 M.Sc. graduates. Our Department is located at Phayathai Campus which makes for a unique academic experience as our students and researchers share resources with other preclinical departments, including Anatomy, Microbiology, Pathobiology, Pharmacology, and Physiology as well as several research centers. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of modern research in biochemistry and molecular biology, many of our training faculty are affiliated with multiple research disciplines that include:

      • Protein and enzyme structure and function
      • Gene regulation and metabolism
      • Molecular cancer
      • Regenerative medicine
      • Biotechnology and nanotechnology

At SCBC, we provide a supportive environment which goes beyond academics. Our Department seeks to promote a spirit of cooperation and communication rather than competitiveness among students and laboratories. Among more than 20 training faculty members, students will be able to select both a training and a research environment best suited to their individual needs.

We are delighted by your interest in pursuing your graduate studies and research collaboration with us. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

 

Sincerely,
Thaned Kangsamaksin
Chairperson
