Undergraduate Research in Chemistry

Research in the lab of a chemistry faculty member enables you to become a firsthand participant in new chemistry discoveries. You will gain research experience, important for entry into industry, graduate school, or any research-related disciplines. These lab contacts may be useful for procuring recommendations for jobs and graduate and professional schools. You will receive course credits when you register for CHEM 399 or CHEM 463 for laboratory or computational work within a chemistry research group. Before you register for these courses, you should complete the Undergraduate Research Contract Form before they register for these courses. For more information, please contact the Chemistry Undergraduate Advisor.
