The Department of Chemistry is renowned as a world class center of excellence and innovation in both research and education, fully resourced and equipped with state-of-the-art technological platforms. Research and education form an integrated whole and all our researchers are involved in teaching next to their research programs. Our undergraduate students are enrolled in a general Chemistry BSc program or in the Molecular Life Sciences BSc track, which prepare them for MSc programs like those on Nanomaterials Science and Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences at UU. Throughout the curricula students are actively involved in performing forefront research. Research in the Chemistry department evolves around two strategic themes, Life Science is studied in the Bijvoet Centre and Sustainability in the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science.
