Fostering a Culture of Respect

The Department of Chemistry is committed to fostering a respectful workplace culture. We strive to cultivate a safe, inclusive and fair environment where our staff, faculty, researchers and students can thrive as they advance new chemical frontiers through research, innovation, collaboration and scholarship.


Message From the Chair

The Chemistry Department sits at an intellectual and physical nexus of the basic sciences, engineering, and medicine at Stanford. In addition to conducting our own forms of exciting research, our natural synergies with the other sciences have led our faculty and students into fascinating exchanges and collaborative projects across disciplines. Our distinguished faculty and alumni include many members of the National Academy of Sciences, Nobel laureates, and recipients of numerous other national and international awards. Join us as we continue to advance fundamental knowledge in chemistry and open new vistas in the areas of the environment, energy, and human health.

Keith Hodgson, Ph.D., David Mulvane Ehrsam and Edward Curtis Franklin Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Photon Science at SLAC
