About

The Department of Chemistry is a home for problem-solvers. Whether that means finding ways to minimize toxic waste or lighting up fluorescent microbes to follow the path of cancer cells, our researchers and faculty are pioneering new solutions every day. Undergraduate and graduate students play a crucial role in that discovery, working closely with faculty in our state-of-the-art labs. We take pride in knowing that our cutting-edge research spans the diversity of the chemistry field — and shapes tomorrow’s biggest chemical breakthroughs.
