About Us

Tomorrow's science professionals will approach discovery and future challenges at a time when traditional boundaries are disappearing. Chemistry unites disciplines such as physics, materials science and cellular biology, while Biochemistry is at the core of molecular life science.

The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry (CBC) is a university-wide department with faculty and staff in both the College of Science and the College of Medicine.  This unique organizational structure provides synergistic opportunities for faculty and students who are pursuing their educational and research goals across the broad range of subdisciplines represented in CBC.  Moreover, CBC offers 10 undergraduate and graduate degrees in either Chemistry (BS, BA, MA, MS, PhD) or Biochemistry (BS, BA, MA, MS, PhD). 

"Our research portfolio in CBC stretches from bugs to batteries, and from cancer cures to catalytic chemistry"
