The cutting-edge research programs span several traditional subdisciplines of chemistry including analytical, biochemistry, organic, physical, inorganic, chemical education and teacher preparation, as well as a broad range of multidisciplinary research programs including biological chemistry, materials science, surface science, polymer science, protein science, and gas phase and interstellar chemistry.
The breadth and diversity of our program provides students considerable freedom in their Ph.D. studies.
In addition to formal Departmental appointments, our faculty members routinely participate in a number of interdisciplinary graduate training programs including the Biological Chemistry Program, Chemical Physics Program, Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology, Program in Applied Mathematics, Computational Modeling of Biomedical Systems, and the IGERT Program in Comparative Genomics.
Graduate students may choose to be affiliated with any number of these programs, some of which provide research assistantships on a highly competitive basis.
The faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry consistently receive research support from the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense and Department of Energy. Annual research expenditures in the Department are in excess of $23 million. The research endeavors in the Department are further supported and enhanced by our world-class research support services.
