The following services are offered by the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Department and MSU.
Biochemistry Building Security:
The building is open Monday through Friday 7:30 am – 6:00 pm. It is against University security policy to allow access to the building by leaving a door propped open. Contact Ron Norris for building security issues.
The office distributes announcements using MSU LISTSERV. To be added to or dropped from any of the following lists, contact the BMB Main Office at BMB.Office@msu.edu :
- BMB Seminar - Recieve updates of seminars offered by the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.
- BMB Building - Recieve updates specific to those working in the Biochemistry Building.
- BMB MSU Campus - Recieve updates on requests from across the campus.
The fax machine in Room 212 is available for department use. The fax number is (517) 353-9334. Our office staff can assist you with sending faxes.
Keys and Electronic ID Card Access:
To obtain electronic ID card access and keys for rooms and labs in the Biochemistry Building please visit our main office to fill out a request form or contact Mary Thompson.
Faculty mailboxes are located in the hall on the 2nd floor near the main office (room 212.) Main office staff can assist with sending:
- Pre-stamped USPS mail: Any mail, personal or business, that has postage paid is picked up directly by USPS mail carriers on a daily basis.

Lab Safety (ORCBS):
Lab safety is the responsibility of the PI in the lab. Most of the necessary training for handling hazardous material is accessible on-line at Environmental Health and Safety, (EHS). If an employee is working with recombinant DNA or radiation they must attend training sessions at the EHS office. Please contact EHS at 5-0153, or Nichole Daly.
Helping Distressed Students:
University students may experience a great deal of stress during the course of their academic experiences. While most students cope successfully with the challenges these years bring, some students find the various pressures of life unmanageable or unbearable. As faculty members, teaching assistants, and other staff, you may encounter distressed students in your office or your classrooms. Many of these students have not sought counseling and may be unaware of the services available to them. Your role could be a positive and crucial one in identifying students who are in distress and assisting them to find the resources available to help themselves.
There may be a time a student communicates to you through email, phone or in person
and signals that they could do harm to themselves or to others. In these situations,
or whenever you have a concern about a student’s communication to you, do not hesitate
to forward that student’s information to:
