The Emory Department of Chemistry is in the process of completing a 90,000 square foot addition to the existing Atwood Chemistry Center. The Atwood Addition will house a 99-seat engaged learning classroom, new laboratories for our growing research faculty, and an open plan chemistry library. We are also excited that the new space will host the second Highland Bakery location on Emory's campus. Sometimes all it takes to inspire great science is a shared cup of coffee in a space that is sure to inspire!

Our graduate student population includes approximately 120 students from across the US and eight foreign countries. Our program is large enough to exhibit research excellence in many areas of chemistry, while still intimate enough for most students and faculty to know each other. While we accept students into four divisions--organic, inorganic, biomolecular, and phsyical/theoretical chemistry--our groups are highly interdisciplinary and work across divisions.
