Embracing challenges and breaking new ground

Research is a major part of our mission and day-to-day life in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Our research laboratories are housed in the Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center (LSBC) at Gateway Park, a state-of-the art, major research facility that opened in spring 2007. The LSBC also houses faculty from the departments of Biomedical Engineering, Biology and Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics, with a research emphasis in the life sciences.

In the LSBC, students find an exceptional, interdisciplinary research environment to pursue their undergraduate and graduate careers. You’ll work side by side and closely with faculty across disciplines to make groundbreaking discoveries, using world-class chemistry and biochemistry research instrumentation.
