We recently moved into a new state-of-the-art teaching and research building; you won't find better facilities anywhere. Our faculty Æs publication and citation rates place us in the top quarter of Chemistry and Biochemistry departments in the country. Our moderate size (~50 graduate students, 18 faculty) means you won't just be a number to us û you will get individual attention from faculty mentors. Instead of cutthroat competition, you will experience a collegial atmosphere û our students study together and help one another succeed. In addition, we are located in a picturesque mountain setting with great year-round recreational opportunities.
