Facilities & Cores

CEACAM Surface

Research and teaching facilities of the department are housed on the fifth and seventh floors of the Basic Science Building and in the Hollings Cancer Center. The fifth floor of the Basic Science Building has recently been completely renovated into state-of-the-art facilities for the Biochemistry Department. The Basic Science Building provides services to approximately 90 scientists belonging to five departments within the College of Medicine. Interactions between these departments are facilitated via interdisciplinary seminars and journal clubs, collaborative research efforts, and the joint teaching of courses for the Colleges of Medicine, Dental Medicine, Graduate Studies, and Pharmacy. Facilities available for use by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology include an auditorium, conference and seminar rooms, shared instrument/equipment room, dark rooms, and other necessary research needs such as a warm and cold room. In addition state-of-the art shared facilities have been established in:

The Basic Science Building also houses experimental animals in the Division of Laboratory Animal Resources. Animals are also housed in the Thurmond Biomedical Research Center so our researchers have, close at hand, the professional and technical staff of Laboratory Animal Resources to provide needed information and care of their research animals. We are fortunate to have on the first floor of the building the Office of Research and Development. Their staff provides information and assistance in identifying extramural funding opportunities for faculty and students. We feature a Graduate Student Research Seminar (includes all students in the Department, i.e. MCBP, etc.) once a month, and the departmental faculty research seminars monthly. These seminars have been very successful as our students have the opportunity to present their research findings and at the same time, learn about the research being conducted by the faculty in the Department, ask questions regarding their research, and exchange information. Library services for students, faculty and staff are available at the Health Affairs Library on the MUSC campus. Additional facilities provided by MUSC and the Hollings Cancer Center can be found:
