Faculty

With more faculty than there are elements on the modern periodic table, the Ph.D. Program in Chemistry offers its students a diversity of options for graduate research. Current research encompasses the full-spectrum of chemical science including analytical, biological, computational, environmental, inorganic, organic, polymer, materials, physical and theoretical chemistries.  Interdisciplinary areas of research including nanoscience, structural biology, molecular biophysics, bioinorganic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, radiochemistry, medicinal chemistry and surface science and are also well represented by multiple faculty. The scale of our faculty aids students in finding the best research mentor and provides a rich resource of chemical expertise to advise and assist students in developing their science.
