Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

In the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Regina, we provide quality education opportunities through dedicated classroom teaching and innovative research programs.

Our department offers B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry and biochemistry. Read about our undergraduate and graduate programs, or contact us directly.

Interdisciplinary research areas in our department include:

Biochemistry: elucidating biosynthetic pathways by understanding enzyme mechanisms.
Biophysics: using microscopy and biochemistry to understand the structure and function of cellular membranes.
Computational Chemistry: simulating catalytic systems with molecular dynamics simulations.
Environmental Analytical Chemistry: identifying and quantifying pesticides in our environment.
Photochemistry: developing photochromic materials and photoresponsive nanoparticles.
Synthetic Chemistry: developing catalysts using organic, inorganic and organometallic chemistry.
Systems Biology: characterizing comprehensive networks of protein-protein and gene-gene interactions to identify therapeutic treatments for disease.
