Department of Chemistry

Your contribution to the Department of Chemistry provides crucial support for the department’s students, who face climbing tuition and a steep decline in state support. It also funds a wide range of life-saving projects, including

  • Ron Cohen’s air quality and climate change research
  • Omar Yaghi’s work in porous crystalline materials that can be used for clean energy storage and generation
  • Jennifer Doudna’s research studying RNA structure and function
  • Michelle Chang’s exploration of biocatalysts to be used in drug discovery
