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.
Winner of the 2015 Esselen Award for chemistry in the public interest, to be presented on April 16th here in Pfizer Lecture Hall by the Northeastern Section of the ACS, is Professor Eric Jacobsen. As described on the NESACS site, this award "recognizes a chemist whose scientific and technical work has contributed to the public well-being, and has thereby communicated positive values of the chemical profession." Congratulations, Eric!
A salute to the following staff members for their years of service: Brianne Crowley (OFARA), 5 years; Mike Quinn (Kahne Group), 10 years; Chris Perry (team CCB), 15 years; and John Randazzo (Mail Room), 15 years. Thank you all for your dedication to CCB!
