The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Baylor University offers a unique combination of individual attention and advanced resources. Our department is of medium size with 17 research faculty and 50+ graduate students, which makes for a close-knit and friendly atmosphere. We have research programs in the core areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, physical, organic and biochemistry) along with more interdisciplinary programs in chemical biology and biomedical research, yet our favorable student-to-faculty ratio makes interaction on a daily basis common. We have many young, active faculty and an expanding graduate program.
