The Department has a dozen highly interactive faculty members working on DNA, RNA, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and in chemical biology. Their research covers a diverse range of fields including carcinogenesis, immunology, computational biology, proteomics, genomics, and epigenetics. Excellent opportunities exist for collaborations with faculty in the Department of Biological Sciences, the nearby School of Medicine, the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics, the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, and the iBio Institute.

The Department of Chemistry has a supportive academic environment and a strong graduate program that confers ~20 PhDs each year. The Department offers an excellent research environment that includes ample, newly renovated research laboratories and a fully staffed instrumentation facility with state-of-the-art equipment including: a phosphorimager; ESI, MALDI-TOF and high-res MS; NMR, CD, and EPR spectrometers; and a transmission electron microscope. Tissue culture and animal care facilities are also available.
