The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at The University of New Mexico offers the Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Chemistry. Our students work on cutting-edge research projects in nationally and internationally recognized research laboratories. 


Key facts:

  • The inter-disciplinary nature of these thrusts provides students with a well-rounded background and many of our graduates obtain top positions upon graduation.  The Chemistry and Chemical Biology programme is offered at the The University of New Mexico.
  • 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.
