The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCSD is a great department that just keeps getting better. As a doctoral degree granting university, UCSD was ranked among the top 10 by the National Research Council in a study released in 1995. The Institute for Scientific Information ranked our department as third in the nation for "High Impact U.S. Universities, 1994-98". The 2002 US News and World Report ranking of "Best Graduate Schools" listed our programs in Biochemistry and Inorganic Chemistry, as among the top in the nation. We award more Bachelor degrees in Chemistry than any other department in the nation and our graduating class is the most diverse (Chemical & Engineering News, Feb 03'). Our distinguished faculty counts an impressive number of members of the National Academy of Sciences, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators, and recent American Chemical Society award winners among its ranks.
UCSD Chemists Develop Self-Assembling Silicon Particles - New Technology
Siyu Chen, Ph.D.
In this interview, we discuss a new approach to surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy that utilizes nano-pockets to capture target molecules, ensuring a highly sensitive way to detect chemical processes.
Dr. Yitong Dong
Dr. Yitong Dong has recently been awarded funding to study custom composite nanocrystals, which could help to create advanced quantum communication technologies. Learn more about this project in this interview.
Roey Elnathan, Ph.D.
We take a closer look at the fusion of nanotechnology and CAR-T therapy through our interview with Dr. Roey Elnathan about a new approach that harnesses the capabilities of nanoneedles to efficiently deliver genetic materials to target cells.
