Coursework in the chemical sciences prepares students to understand the physical and living world and to make scientifically informed contributions to many academic fields and society at large. Biochemistry majors pair a chemistry scaffold with molecularly focused course-work in biology. The curriculum provides students considerable flexibility to explore sub-disciplines of chemistry in ways they find most stimulating. Students engage in collaborative research with faculty and participate in internships at national laboratories, in industrial or medical settings.
Careers include drug development, instrumentation, bio-technology, cosmetics, environmental monitoring and agrochemicals. Students go on to graduate study in a variety of fields, including medicine.
Congratulations to Hilary Eppley and the IONiC VIPEr team!
The IONiC VIPEr team has been funded with a new National Science Foundation Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science (NSF TUES) Type 2 Grant. Hilary is a member of the Senior Personnel for this multi-institutional grant and plans to spend part of her next sabbatical working on the project.
