The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

Department of Biochemistry


The Colman Library (in the Hopkins building) is the departmental library.   The Assistant Librarian is available to help in locating books and journals and for advice on accessing and using  electronic library resources. Part II and Part III Biochemistry students have priority over Part I students for seating in the library.
