Research thrusts within the Department touch upon all of the major sub-disciplines.

Forensic, biochemistry and cheminformatics and computational faculty solve grand challenges associated with next-generation diagnostic tools, material-based therapies, and chemical toxicity. Environmental, organic and materials chemistry faculty use natural materials to engineer materials with extraordinary mechanical properties, biological compatibility, and biodegradability while synthesizing and characterizing several conducting polymers or novel fluorocarbons for device applications.
