A Florida State University chemist specializing in the study of chemical reactions between materials has received a national honor for his work from the American Chemical Society, or ACS.
Chemistry and Biochemistry
A Florida State University researcher will investigate efficient strategies to chemically synthesize some of nature’s most complex molecular structures thanks to a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
We’ve all experienced the nuisance sting of a paper cut, but that tiny skin tear is a signal to the body’s immune system that a battle is beginning. As our bodies enlist the power of our immune systems to thwart bacterial invaders attempting to gain entry, the bacteria are employing defenses of their own.
The transition to life as a college student can be challenging. For many freshmen starting at Florida State University, the move to Tallahassee means starting a new life in a new city far from family and friends.
A Florida State University faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has earned a highly competitive award for her work in improving the efficiency of solar cells as well as innovation in and dedication to education.
Samuel Adewale Adegboyega is a doctoral student in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, part of Florida State University’s College of Arts and Sciences. His research interests reside in the field of physical and inorganic chemistry, and he is originally from Ogbomoso, a city in Oyo State Nigeria. Adegboyega hopes to graduate from FSU with his doctoral degree in Summer 2026.
Two Florida State University chemistry doctoral graduates are among the recipients of one of the most prestigious and highly competitive fellowships awarded to postdoctoral researchers studying chemical sciences and instrumentation.
Research to improve the detection of Salmonella and to speed up the development of new medicines received funding from a Florida State University program that supports faculty moving their work from the lab to the marketplace.
Florida State University will welcome researchers from around the world as it hosts the 39th International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis, or MSB 2023, from May 21-24 at the Augustus B. Turnbull III Florida State Conference Center.
A team of Florida State University researchers has further developed a new generation of organic-inorganic hybrid materials that can improve image quality in X-ray machines, CT scans and other radiation detection and imaging technologies.
When doctors are examining suspected cancer cases, they turn to biomarker tests to help make a diagnosis. With a testing system and patient samples, physicians can investigate potential leads, narrowing down their list of culprits to provide precise, effective treatment for patients.
At the atomic and subatomic scales of matter, classical laws of nature lose control and quantum mechanics take over. Discoveries of new quantum phenomena and materials, such as quantum entanglement and topological systems, promise to deliver groundbreaking technologies.
