|In the last seven years
big changes have occurred within the chemistry department.
The great resurgence of research presently conducted on the
campus is due primarily to the efforts of LIU's hard-working
faculty who have been awarded many grants in the last
several years. These grants run the gamut from research
and instrument grants to grants to finance the education of
under-represented minorites in science.
One such grant available to incoming
freshmen intending to major in chemistry and biochemistry
Our LIU education has given us the knowledge and traininig
to succeed !
"I truly believe the personal attention
