Our department is housed in two recently renovated, state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, Salem Hall and Wake Downtown. In addition to traditional chemistry degree programs, we support new interdisciplinary programs in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Discovery, and Materials Chemistry.
