Faculty & Research


At UC Davis, we have a diverse and interdisciplinary group of faculty, students, postdocs, and staff engaged in a wide breadth of research.  Here you can explore many different areas of chemistry, including biofuels, nucleic acids, glycoscience, metabolic engineering, imaging, metalloenzymes, reaction kinetics, spectroscopy, natural product synthesis, nanomaterials, medicinal chemistry, protein structure, vaccine design, and more.

We also encourage and support research that transcends traditional academic boundaries by bringing together scholars from different areas of study who share our interest in the chemical sciences, such as the School of Medicine, College of EngineeringCollege of Biological Sciences, and Genome Center (see Graduate Groups at UC Davis for more information about the graduate group concept).
