"Chemistry is a substantial science by the measures of industry, economics, and politics. As an academic discipline, it underlies the vibrant growth of molecular biology, materials science, and medical technology. Although not the youngest of sciences, its frontiers continue to expand in remarkable ways. And although it shares boundaries with every other field of science, it has an autonomy, both methodologically and conceptually."—Of Minds and Molecules: New Philosophical Perspectives on Chemistry, Nalini Bhushan and Stuart Rosenfeld, editors (Oxford University Press, 2000).
Summer Research in Chemistry
The Chemistry/Biochemistry SURF program is winding down. Another great summer under our belt! Students are writing their research abstracts and we are all looking forward to hearing about their accomplishments during Collaborations and Lunchbags next academic year. A complete discussion of this type of science research opportunities can be found on the Science Center Web page under "Student Opportunities."
Chemistry Seminars and Lectures
As soon as the academic year starts, we will start our seminar series. Chemists and biochemists from around the country present their current research. Check out the "Seminar Schedule" for upcoming events. A summary of Molecular and Life Sciences presentations is also linked to in our "Seminar Schedule" page.
Every Wednesday at noon students and faculty get together for an informal presentation of their independent research projects. This semester's schedule may be found at the "Lunchbag Calendar".
Grab&Go lunch for chemistry/biochemistry students is available!
