Welcome to Harvard University’s Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology (CCB). We are proud to continue our department’s rich tradition of research and scholarship in the molecular sciences. Our research activities in CCB span the core disciplines of organic, inorganic, and physical chemistry and the interdisciplinary frontiers of the life and physical sciences.
We are excited to announce that Professor Charles M. Lieber, the Mark Hyman Jr. Professor of Chemistry, will serve as the new Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, beginning on July 1, 2015. Professor Lieber joined our Department in 1991. His research has focused broadly on science and technology at the nanoscale, using novel synthesized building blocks to push scientific boundaries in diverse areas from biology/medicine to energy and computing. We look forward to the strong and thoughtful leadership he will provide as Chair!
