The distinguished Emeriti faculty of the Biological Chemistry Department have been widely viewed as some of the best scientist in their field. Emeriti faculty continue to pursue their scientific endeavors while providing important insight and guidance to the next generation of scientists. We regard the Emeriti faculty in our departm​ent as not only a marker of what we have been able to accomplish as a department but as a key component to our continued ​success.​​​
