Samford University’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers the education, personal attention and mentoring our students require for careers in “the central science.”
Faculty-led research with student collaborators is the distinctive focus of our program and the distinguishing feature of our highly competitive graduates. This immersive, one-on-one experience creates opportunities for professional networking and publication in peer-reviewed journals, and helps open the doors to graduate education and careers as researchers, physicians, dentists, pharmaceutical representatives, educators, pharmacists and lawyers.
Current students interested in performing research in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry should fill out the research application form and return it to the departmental office.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty are my second family. Every one of them has contributed to fostering a research atmosphere on the third floor of Propst Hall and continues to push me to develop essential skills as a scientist. Rebekah Brooks, U.S. Goldwater Scholar, 2014
