“Before I took this course, I was wondering why I should cram so hard just so I could remember all those pathways and enzymes. But Professor Ahern is a born teacher; he explains concepts so clearly and he never leaves anyone behind. I’m even thinking of taking a Master’s in biochemistry now!”

Biochemistry is the study of the chemical and physical principles of living things and of biological processes, including cell development, growth, heredity, and disease. In medical science, biochemistry helps us understand how biochemical changes affect the physiology of the human body. It gives insight into the chemical aspects of biological processes such as digestion, hormonal action, and muscle contraction-relaxation.

Biochemistry can be divided into many different areas of study, including structural biology, enzymology, neurochemistry, genetics, and metabolism.

Every student is different and may find different subjects more or less difficult. You may find biochemistry challenging if you have a hard time remembering a lot of details, for example, or if you don’t like chemistry very much. But with the right combination of resources, like our Qbank, video lectures, and Concept Pages, you can do it!

→ Start the Biochemistry Learning Path

The most effective way to ace your biochemistry class is to combine different learning modalities.

First, do a deep dive into the topic with video lessons hosted by experienced educators. Next, plunge into Lecturio’s comprehensive Concept Pages. Then, apply what you’ve learned by answering clinical case questions in the Qbank. Finally, make sure you retain information long term by regularly reviewing your knowledge with Spaced-Repetition quizzes.
