The Association of Medical and Graduate Departments of Biochemistry (AMGDB), founded in 1969, represents Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at graduate and medical schools in North America, including the 50 United States and Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
The AMGDB is concerned with issues related to fundamental and biomedical science, health research, science policy and education. We work with and support the teaching mission of the Association of Biochemistry Course Directors. Through its web site, AMGDB serves as a conduit between departments and graduate student and postdoctoral applicants. It also notifies young scientists about openings for faculty positions in biochemistry departments throughout North America. It maintains a examination question bank, discussion board and listing of biochemistry departments and chairs.
