Now at the end of its fifth year, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s accreditation program for undergraduate degrees in biochemistry and molecular biology continues to grow at an average rate of 14 programs per year, with nearly 1,000 students taking the 2018 certification exam.

Accredited programs are now in 38 states, spanning the continental U.S. Among the 85 accredited institutions are 20 R1 universities, led by four from the Big Ten — Minnesota, Nebraska, Penn State and Purdue — along with three each from the ACC and Southwest conferences. At the other end of the spectrum are primarily undergraduate institutions with enrollments of 1,500 or fewer, such as Earlham, Hampden Sydney, Hendrix and Huntingdon colleges.
