About the University
About Florida State University Florida State University is a world-class public institute that ranks 19th among all public universities, and 55th among universities in the United States. The University comprises 16 separate colleges and more than 110 centers, facilities, labs, and institutes that offer more than 360 programs of study, including professional school programs.
Florida State is home to Florida’s only national laboratory, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, which is also the only national laboratory with a high magnetic field in the United States. It is also the birthplace of the commercially viable anti-cancer drug Taxol. Additionally, Florida State University is one of the eight core university partners of Oak Ridge National Lab.
About Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at FSU is one of the oldest departments at Florida State University established in the 1880s. It is also the home department of Nobel prize winner Prof. Harry Kroto, who discovers fullerenes. Among all the current faculty members in the department, more than 10 of the faculties are fellows of NAS, AAAS, ACS, APS, MRS, and RSC. It also hosts the director of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. The strong research atmosphere here will be a great catalyst for great research ideas and collaborations.
