Chemistry and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology majors are encouraged to participate in research with Chemistry Department faculty members during their college careers. One of the unique aspects of the Dickinson program is that students may begin research as soon as the completion of their freshman year. Three options exist with regard to student research: students may complete a one semester research credit by performing a minimum of 8 hours of research per week in a faculty member's lab; a limited number of opportunities exist for performing paid summer research with faculty members on campus, and there is also the opportunity to work at another institution with Dickinson and/or non-Dickinson faculty. Additionally, qualified students are invited to participate in Honors Research with a Dickinson faculty member. As part of the Chemistry program, students are required to complete one of the three options mentioned above in order to graduate with a chemistry degree. Students who plan on continuing their studies in chemistry at the master's, Ph.D., or medical school level are encouraged to participate beyond a single semester.

Current and Historic Student-Faculty Projects 

The following list includes current and historic, individual student research projects, public presentations from conferences, symposia and exhibitions*, and peer-reviewed publications. For abstracts on each project see Students as Scholars.

*“Supported by:” on Student Conference Presentation records indicates the entity or funding mechanism that supported the student’s participation in the conference, i.e. travel expenses, poster costs, etc.  For on-campus conferences, the supporting entity is usually the academic department sponsoring the event.

**“Supported by:” on Student Research Project records indicates the entity or funding mechanism that supported the student’s research costs, i.e. supplies, materials, equipment, stipends, local or international research travel, etc.
