Modern chemical research and education is interdisciplinary and interactive, and the faculty and staff of the UAB Department of Chemistry are engaged in research, education, and service activities that make a difference in the lives of the people of Alabama, the United States, and the world.

Members of the award-winning UAB chemical education faculty are not only engaged in the education of our chemistry undergraduate majors and graduate students, but also serve more than 3,000 other UAB undergraduates each year through the department’s extensive service teaching component.

The Department of Chemistry has extensive and internationally recognized research programs that provide outstanding research experiences to UAB graduate students and PhD researchers, as well as our talented undergraduates. UAB Chemistry faculty join with affiliated UAB faculty from other departments and colleges, as well as collaborators from around the world, to work in state-of-the-art facilities and produce cutting edge science.

These programs are supported by a talented and dedicated administrative and technical staff. We invite you to look through our web site and learn more about the people that are making a difference every day in the Department of Chemistry at UAB.
