The Department serves the worldwide scientific community through leadership roles and active participation in national and international conferences, serving in study sections and on federal agency panels. Additionally, our Department’s faculty roster encompasses editors of journals and members of editorial boards, as well as board members of national and international governmental centers and members of advisory boards of companies in the private sector. Moreover, the Department is committed to serve the community by participating in a variety of outreach events to promote awareness of the importance of science and technology in relation to public health and the environment.
Our Department is also unique for hosting the internationally recognized annual Miami Winter Symposium, created by Professor William Whelan, the first leader and Chair of the Department. The Miami Winter Symposium is currently managed by Elsevier and features world-renowned speakers in emerging areas of science and technology. This event cements our Department’s goal of furthering education and discovery in biochemistry and molecular biology on an international level.
