Featured biochemistry Faculty

Dr. An-Phong Le
- Chemistry Department Chair

I challenge students to build their own connections between the very small (molecular and nanoscale principles) and the very large (macroscopic phenomena) through active hands-on and brains-on experiences that bridge the chemistry classroom and the chemistry laboratory. These connections extend from our chemistry coursework to the diverse topics and fields that fascinate our students, and it is these interconnections that will lead to breakthroughs, both big and small, that will continue to change and improve the world.
