Students in a Chem Lab

Welcome to the website for the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati. We are a historically strong department positioning ourselves for even greater achievements in the 21st century. As a Carnegie Foundation-designated Doctoral/ Research-Extensive Institution, our department strives for excellence in both the undergraduate and graduate education experiences. We are a medium-sized department providing the amenities and resources typically found only in much larger departments, while retaining the closeness and faculty-student interactions characteristic of smaller departments. Our world-class faculty are recipients of numerous regional, national and international awards and provide leadership in scholarship and research in a variety of areas such as drug design & delivery, green chemistry, chemical and biochemical sensors and biophysical methods, to name but a representative few.

As the "central science," chemistry at UC provides diverse opportunities for collaborative studies with colleagues at the UC Genome Research Institute, UC College of Medicine, Children's Hospital, UC College of Engineering and within departments in our home college, the College of Arts and Sciences. Procter & Gamble along with several federal research labs including the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health all have a significant presence in Cincinnati. Undergraduate and graduate students alike have numerous opportunities for internships, co-ops, and collaborative study with our industrial and federal research partners.

Laboratory safety symposium coming to UC

July 12, 2024

The University of Cincinnati’s College of Arts and Sciences is partnering with the Lab Safety Institute to offer the Safer Science Summit July 22-26. The three-day STEAM Safer Science Summit will of educators and administrators K-12 an opportunity to keep up with the latest on chemical management, laboratory safety, regulatory compliance, hazard identification, legal aspects of safety and much more. Chemistry professor and A&S dean James Mack says the partnership and summit are designed to offer STEAM educators instruction and education about keeping students safe while they perform experiments. “Safety is always first,” Mack says. “We want to make sure our K-12 teachers have the equipment they need to be safe. People can get cut, or lose their sight, and spills can happen, especially when you’re dealing with chemicals.” The Laboratory Safety Institute, a non-profit educational institute, has been providing safety courses and consulting for chemical labs worldwide for the last 40 years. Its courses have been taught to more than 100,000 people in 30 countries, across industries from high-tech to government, and academia to medicine. The event is free, and educators who enroll can receive continuing education credits. Sign up here.
