IPiB Standing Committees

The Integrated Program in Biochemistry is overseen by a Steering Committee, a democratic group composed of faculty members from both Biochemistry and Biomolecular Chemistry Departments, and a graduate student representative, ensuring wide participation in the governance of our Program. The Steering Committee’s charge is to provide Program and policy recommendations for approval by the two departmental faculties. The Steering Committee includes representatives from each of the committees that administer all aspects of our degree program.
