Chemistry Research

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry believes that teaching students to be effective chemists requires exposure to real research. As sophomores, our students are introduced to faculty research and given the opportunity to pursue any project they wish. Students work directly with faculty on research projects and are trusted to carry out high-level work. Students have ample opportunities to present their research at regional and national conferences, and some have even had their work published. Explore the projects listed below for a sampling of department research projects.
