Suffolk’s Chemistry and Biochemistry program offers an intensive, laboratory-based curriculum paired with unparalleled opportunities for independent research in one of the most scientifically advanced cities in the world. Students go on to work in laboratories and hospitals here in Boston and beyond; others pursue graduate degrees in medicine and forensics.

Practical Experience in a World-Class City

Boston is known for its extraordinary hospitals and laboratories. Scientific pioneers come from all over the world to work at and receive treatment in our medical facilities; our laboratories are responsible for transformative innovations in cancer research, HIV/AIDS, and more. You’re urged to take full advantage of this access; many students go on to labs and medical schools right here in Boston, with relationships facilitated by Suffolk faculty. Under the advisement of a faculty member, you’ll also be encouraged to apply for National Science Foundation Fellowships, which allow you to participate in funded summer research projects here and across the country.
