Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at Tufts University
Tufts' graduate program in chemistry is large enough to foster stimulating interactions among colleagues but small enough to have a low ratio of students to faculty. Our department's resources and external funding support high-impact research, while our smaller size fosters close working relationships between graduate students and research advisors. The advisor is not simply the head of the lab, but a true mentor that provides individualized training and support to help graduate students progress to the next stage of their careers.
In the Department of Chemistry at Tufts University, we have robust external funding and access to cutting-edge equipment. These resources enable a wide variety of nationally and internationally recognized research programs. From disease diagnostics to monitoring single atoms, researchers at Tufts Chemistry are attacking some of the trickiest questions of the molecular world, and some of the most important global problems.
