Overview

The program’s hallmark is that all students are required to engage in faculty-directed independent research projects. Through this work, majors apply the principles they have learned in the classroom and laboratory to the solution of real-world scientific problems, and also gain hands-on experience in the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation, data analysis and interpretation. Chemical Biology majors from Saint Joseph's University have presented their research at local, regional and national meetings and in scientific journals, and are nominated regularly for Phi Beta Kappa honors and prestigious science awards.
