The courses offered by the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry are designed with the intention that students should be stimulated to carry out critical, independent work. As an integral part of all their classes, students develop proficiency in the laboratory with modern instrumentation and state-of-the-art equipment.
Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry:
In the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, students will find infrared, UV-visible, NMR, Raman, emission, and atomic absorption spectroscopy instrumentation, liquid and gas chromatography instrumentation, and more. Our JEOL 400 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer is a wonderful benefit for students and allows access to 1D and 2D NMR methods of analysis.
Department of Biology:
In the Department of Biology, students will have access to confocal, epifluorescent, and differential interference contrast microscopy, flow cytometers, a full tissue culture facility, real-time imaging systems, a range of molecular biology tools and equipment, and digital protein and DNA imaging.
