The PhD in Chemistry allows you to build on your work as an independent researcher in an environment that combines chemistry, biochemistry, and physics. You will work alongside world-renowned faculty members whose expertise in areas such as environmental chemistry, bionanoscience and protein science will propel your research to the next level. The Centre for Research in Molecular Modeling (CERMM), The Centre for NanoScience Research (CeNSR) and The Centre for Biological Applications of Mass Spectrometry (CBAMS) are recognized for their research excellence and highly qualified personnel training. Our faculty and researchers have published in numerous journals, including Nature and Journal of the American Chemical Society, and have received honours from the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Canada Research Chairs Program.
