The department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology offers education in basic chemistry and modern chemistry-related disciplines.
Our faculty carry out state-of-the-art research in a wide variety of experimental and theoretical fields, including bioanalysis, bio-organic and medicinal chemistry, biophysicsal chemistry, computational biology, nanomaterials, and proteomics. Northeastern University is an ideal place to meet the challenges that chemical professionals face daily through exciting co-op positions in local high-tech industries.
The graduate programs offer opportunities for part-time and full-time study toward the Master of Science degree, and full-time study toward the Doctor of Philosophy in chemistry or an individually designed interdisciplinary program. An intellectually rigorous foundation of courses, plus research in a specialized area, prepares Ph.D. students for independent, original research and development in the chemical sciences.
