University of Maryland Baltimore County
About University of Maryland Baltimore County
With 29 faculty whose expertise span the major sub-disciplines of chemistry, over 60 Ph.D. and MS students and nearly 400 undergraduate majors, the UMBC Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is a relatively intimate community dedicated to premiere education from the BA/BS to Ph.D. level, and to internationally recognized research at the bleeding edges of “the Central Science”. This is accomplished by a highly motivated and research active faculty who direct groups in experimental and computational approaches that employ state of the art technologies in a facility, the Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Chemistry Building, that was fully renovated and re-dedicated in 2005.
Our campus is located in suburban Baltimore, in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic region, along the Baltimore-Washington corridor, and thus benefits from close proximity to one of the world’s greatest concentrations of scientific research activity. Nearby NIH and NIST are the loci of a number of faculty research collaborations and many faculty interact closely with corporate, high-tech and the greater scientific community in the vicinity.
