Overview

About the Graduate Program

Our students in the Chemistry program at The University of New Mexico work on cutting-edge research projects in nationally and internationally recognized research laboratories. 

The Department has three primary research thrusts each comprised of several faculty mentors, namely,

  • Biological Chemistry/Chemical Biology/Medicinal Chemistry (Liang, Melancon, Dunaway-Mariano, Keller, Kirk, Wang, Guo)
  • Catalysis and Synthesis (Kemp, Wang, Kirk, Guo) 
  • Physical Chemistry/Energy/Materials (Qin, Grey, Kirk, Guo, Habteyes)

The inter-disciplinary nature of these thrusts provides students with a well-rounded background and many of our graduates obtain top positions upon graduation.  Please see ‘Faculty Research’ for specific information regarding individual interests.

Our close proximity to both Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories as well as the Air Force Research Laboratory at nearby Kirtland AFB offers yet another unique experience to students through collaborative projects with UNM faculty.  Several of our faculty are also closely associated with these organizations or have official joint appointments.   Inter-disciplinary graduate research programs (e.g., Nano-science and Microsystems, NSMS, Center for Biomedical Engineering, CBME, and the Center for High technology Materials, CHTM) are available to students and many C&CB faculty are associated with these programs. Our faculty obtain research grants from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy and other government and private sources of research support. 

We are also in the process of significant remodeling and renovations to Clark Hall and the Riebsomer wing housing many research labs.  Furthermore, we have added five new faculty members in the last three years to help build our research thrusts and additional hires in these areas will take place in the coming years.
