The Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry has just been officially approved. The program is specifically targeted at future biochemists; one that fully integrates its two core disciplines, chemistry and biology. It will officially open in the Fall of 2016
The Office of Nuclear Energy Issues Requests for Scholarship and Fellowship Applications
The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) today announced two new Requests for Applications (RFAs) for the Integrated University Program (IUP) seeking applicants for undergraduate scholarships and graduate-level fellowships in nuclear energy-related fields. These are separate from the NRC Scholarships and Fellowships recently announced
New Internships for students are available and have been listed in the "Opportunities Tab". Deadlines are fast approaching!!! Please click on the Opportunities Tab
Chemistry professors Jose Almirall, Anthony DeCaprio and Bruce McCord shared these grants. The fellowships were awarded to chemistry professor Yi Xiao‘s research group to study rapid on-site screening of synthetic cannabinoids in seized substances and biological samples, and to McCord’s research group studying DNA methylation — the modification of a strand of DNA after it is replicated — for identification of body fluids.
Final deadline for the Nuclear Research Fellowships (March 15, 2016) and Nuclear Research Scholarships (March 1st, 2016). **** Final Deadlines*****
On May 10, 2016, the Chemistry & Biochemistry department will celebrate our graduates. We cordially invite our graduates and their families to join us at the Chemistry Reception Area in CP 320 from 5:30-7:30pm.

Professor Fenfei Leng led a group which has recently synthesized a type of novel fluorescently labeled circular DNA molecules to study DNA topology and topoisomerases by fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET). The research article was published at Scientific Reports on October 31, 2016. The first author, Maxwell Gu, is a high school senior at American Heritage High School
Recognized for Outstanding Contribution in Teaching was Sandra Stoyanovic; for Outstanding Contribution in Research were: Rudolf Jaffe, Yuan Liu, Alexander Mebel, and Yi Xiao; for Outstanding Contribution in Service were Milagros Delgado, Konstantinos Kavallieratos, and Kathleen Rein
The Department of Homeland Security, and others have available opportunities for undergraduates available for the Summer. Additionally FIU Nuclear Fellowship Program has various opportunities for graduate students both incoming to FIU and current FIU students. Do not miss these opportunities!
Congratulations to the MMC student ACS chapter, and to its advisors, Uma Swamy and Jonng-ho Moon for earning an Outstanding award for its activities conducted during the 2015-2016 academic year! In addition the MMC student ACS chapter was also conferred with the green chemistry award. The award winning chapters will be honored at the 253rd ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, CA on Sunday, April 2nd, 2017.
Drs. Evgen Govor and Raphael Raptis in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, FIU, along with collaborators in Athens (Greece) and Oxford (U.K.) have discovered the first example of a multinuclear complex undergoing a high-spin (H) to low-spin (L) conversion upon an one-electron reduction.
Jill Beaver, receiving a Ph.D. in Biochemistry under Professor Yuan Liu's guidance will also be recognized as a World's Ahead student at the Commencement Ceremonies to be held at 10 am on 12/12/2016. Congratulations!
