The department provides a uniquely stimulating environment for scientific discoveries: we are world leaders in nanotechnology, home to two Nobel laureates and three members of the National Academy of Sciences, and one of only six NSF funded centers for nanoscale science and engineering. In addition to nanoscience, research projects in our department span a wide range of disciplines. Outstanding research in the traditional fields of organic, inorganic, physical and theoretical chemistry is paired with cutting edge cross-disciplinary research in bio-organic, bio-inorganic, bio-materials, and bio-physical chemistry.
Much of the research in the Chemistry Department is highly interdisciplinary, significantly contributing to the advancement of sciences at the intersection of a variety of fields. Many faculty members hold joint appointments including the departments of bioengineering, biochemistry and cell biology, chemical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, physics and astronomy, computer science, mechanical engineering and materials science, and the Baylor College of Medicine.
