Ph.D. Programs

Professor working with doctoral student in lab

Our doctoral programs in chemistry and biochemistry invite independent, academically-driven students to join our diverse and supportive community of scholars and life-long learners.

Collaboration – between faculty, research scientists, fellow graduate students, undergraduates, and our interdisciplinary research partners on campus and at STEM research institutions around the globe – is at the core of our programs. Our academic environment fosters a sense of community and shared purpose among our students, research staff, and faculty.
