Organic Chemistry

Keeping pace with the forefront of scientific research, the organic chemistry faculty maintains considerable breadth and strength in organic synthesis, catalysis, physical organic chemistry, chemical biology, materials science, combinatorial chemistry, and computational chemistry. Organic chemistry lends itself naturally to interdisciplinary study, and many students interact extensively with students and faculty in the departments of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry (MB&B), Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB), Applied Physics, and Engineering. Overall, the goal of the faculty is to ensure that each student develops fully as a scientist, makes an impact on the forefront of science, and is successful in pursuing a career beyond Yale.
