Chemistry and Biochemistry stand out as the sciences that are central, creative and useful. Central because many questions, from public health to environment and energy, from the life sciences to the materials, end up being answered on the molecular level. To find these answers, new matter, that is new molecules, new molecular architectures are created - much alike artists shaping their sculptures. The results are most useful for our society, chemistry and biochemistry account for much of our quality of life, an important percentage of Swiss economy.

The School of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers complete education at all levels, from the BS for our youngest students to MS, PhD and postdoctoral studies, all supported by attractive fellowships. A vibrant research atmosphere in the Departments of Biochemistry, Inorganic and Analytical, Organic, and Physical Chemistry prepares our students for future careers in academia, industry or elsewhere. Members of the School have created the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Chemical Biology, and the School operates the Chimiscope for the general public.
