About

 

With a pedigree as one of the oldest Chemistry departments in England, we provide a vibrant environment in which to study 21st century undergraduate and postgraduate chemistry in the heart of London.

Our approach enshrines the rigour of the discipline in a progressive interdisciplinary context, designed to produce a new generation of scientists fluent across traditional subject boundaries. The cross-fertilisation of physical and biological sciences enables our graduates to harness the transformative power of chemistry and tackle emerging challenges in modern society and medicine.

Continuing an illustrious tradition at the University, epitomised by the discoveries of Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins in the structure of DNA, the department has a distinct focus on understanding the chemistry of life and the interface with biology. Our imaginative, interdisciplinary research provides the foundations for innovations in chemical biology, biomaterials science, synthetic biology and nanomedicine.
