Theoretical Chemistry Faculty
» These faculty have primary appointments in the chemistry department.
Biological Chemistry Cluster Faculty
» Faculty in the Clusters have primary appointments in other departments but can mentor chemistry graduate students.
» Research professors do not accept graduate students, but have active research programs within the department.
