.....integrating chemical and biomolecular sciences to achieve a sustainable environment, understand health and disease, and advance new molecular technologies.

Welcome to the Department

Who we are and what we do

The Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences (CBMS) is part of the Faculty of Science and has around 20 academic staff and 60 higher degree research students making us one of the most research-intensive departments on campus. The Department is located in buildings F7B and E8C, adjacent to the University's Research Park........Read On

Welcome from our HOD

Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences (CBMS). Our department is a merger of staff from the former Department of Chemistry and a group of staff from the biology discipline that study cells and biological processes from a molecular perspective. These two areas of the university have long traditions of teaching and research excellence. This realignment is an exciting one as it will ensure that the innovative university can maintain its high profile and success in these key disciplines of 21st century science. If you are a prospective undergraduate or postgraduate student and would like further personalised career or degree advice we would be happy for you to contact any member of academic staff listed in this site.
