Our Graduates

UD students who obtain their B.S. or B.A. in chemistry go on to do great things. Many choose to go on to medical school and, over the last 13 years, 100% of UD biochemistry students who have applied to medical school have been accepted. Others go on to graduate school and have received prestigious awards, such as a National Science Foundation fellowship. Many have presented at American Chemical Society meetings, and still others have continued research overseas or used their knowledge to teach chemistry in underdeveloped nations.
