Mas Subramanian was already an accomplished scientist. But he wanted something more — to help students with their own discoveries.
Richard Nafshun has devoted his career to creating better learning experiences for students.

At the Department of Chemistry, our passions are broad and far-reaching. Our researchers have access to world-class facilities that help them solve critical problems. Our students come from all over the world, and we create experiences for them that go beyond the classroom. Whether it’s providing study abroad opportunities, internships, or the chance to work alongside faculty, our job is to help scientists build a promising future.
