Practical and Research Skills

While pursuing your degree at the U of L there are opportunities to determine which area of Chem or Bchm best suits you. These opportunities give you the chance to experience Chemistry in a research lab setting, as part of an Interdisciplinary course – iGEM, or teaching Grade 8-12 students about Science with the Let’s Talk Science Program.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has many advanced instruments to enable cutting-edge research. These tools include nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infra-red, Raman, UVvisible, atomic absorption spectrometers, macromolecular x-ray diffractometer, isothermal titration calorimeter, and a surface plasmon resonance spectrometer. Students learn to use such instruments as a part of several undergraduate courses and during research opportunities.

Students have many opportunities available. For a detailed list visit our Research page.
