Washington University in St. Louis has long been acknowledged as one of the world’s leading research institutions.  The department’s traditional strengths in instrumental physical chemistry (particularly solid-state NMR, NMR imaging, mass spectrometry, and laser spectroscopy) and nuclear & radiochemistry have been supplemented with burgeoning materials chemistry and biological chemistry focused research groups.  At the intersection of these fields lies research in the broad field of energy research, including a vigorous research program focused on photosynthesis funded by one of the largest-ever Department of Energy grants, which has strong implications for understanding and improving energy sources.
