Lancaster's newly-founded Department of Chemistry boasts an expanding team of research-active academic staff at the forefront of research in their respective fields. It benefits from a significant investment from the University, and an extensive array of new instrumentation and equipment to support our research activities.
Our vision for the Department is ambitious; to create a Chemistry Department with both research and teaching that is competitive with the very best the UK has to offer. Our staff come from a variety of research backgrounds and thus have interests spanning many areas of both fundamental and contemporary interest. Perhaps most importantly, they share common ground in research-excellence, an inclusive and collaborative spirit, and a dedication to passing on their knowledge and passion for chemistry to a new generation of researchers.
Earlier this week, sixth form students from across the South Lakes area visited the Chemistry Department at Lancaster University, to compete against each other in the inaugural South Lakes Federation-Lancaster Chemistry Competition. Read more
