Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry

Message from Dr Eric R. Gauthier, Chair.


On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.

Located in the Science I Building on the beautiful Laurentian University campus, our department offers programs leading to a B.Sc. in Chemistry, a B.Sc. in Biochemistry, as well as an M.Sc. in Chemical Sciences.

Our three B.Sc. Specialization programs are fully accredited from the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC). In addition to being a sign of good program quality, the CSC accreditation increases the professional mobility of our graduates, since their diploma is recognized throughout Canada and abroad.

The Department prides itself in providing hands-on training. In addition to several courses having a laboratory component, many opportunities are available to our students to gain valuable career experience by working alongside their professors as undergraduate interns. This prepares our graduates to face a competitive job market or to undertake advanced studies.

Hailing from around the globe, our faculty members are actively involved in fundamental and applied research projects. Research in the department covers a wide range of fields, including environmental chemistry, biomaterials and surface chemistry, the molecular basis for the resistance to cancer chemotherapy, the chemistry of natural products, the role of gasotransmitters in cardiovascular diseases, as well as theoretical and computational chemistry.

Come on. Join us and be a part of the Chem-Biochem family! We don’t  !
