Vanderbilt Chemistry

Vanderbilt Chemistry is the intellectual home to undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and faculty members working in a wide range of specializations, as well as the interdisciplinary fields of chemical biology, structural biology, molecular toxicology, materials chemistry, and nanotechnology.

Close collaboration with the School of Medicine, School of Engineering and School of Arts and Science, particularly the departments of Biological Sciences and Physics, provides valuable opportunities to not only excel in the traditional disciplines of chemistry but also investigate the many ways that chemistry intersects with other fields. This diversity of inquiry makes it possible for both graduate and undergraduate students to customize their education to their interests and career goals, as well as contribute to some of the most exciting new science being conducted today.
