Welcome to Chemistry & Chemical Biology

LandingPageUneditLocated on the Busch Campus of Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey, our department is home to world-class research programs that impact society in areas as diverse as health, energy, and the environment.

Our leading graduate and undergraduate programs provide exceptional training to research scientists and prepare our graduates to become leaders in industry, academia, and government. With state-of-the-art research facilities and internationally-recognized faculty, we have the tools and people needed to develop and explore groundbreaking ideas across the many fields touched by chemistry.

In addition to educational opportunities, our department is uniquely positioned as both large and small chemical companies are based in New Jersey. Chemistry exports account for over a quarter of the value of the state's yearly exports.

In September 2018, we opened our new signature building. It includes open, flexible labs and state-of-the-art core facilities as well as modern teaching, conferencing, and communal spaces that maximize collaborative interactions. This building enhances our high-quality science and training and continues to strengthen our broad interdisciplinary academic and research programs, further impacting our region's economy and society.

CURRENT OPERATING STATUS: Face coverings must be worn by all persons on campus whether outdoors when social distancing is not practical or indoors in non-private enclosed settings (e.g., common spaces, bathrooms).
