Chemistry at Glasgow has a long and illustrious history with four Nobel prize winners associated with our work: graduates Sir William Ramsay and Lord Todd, and former staff members, Frederick Soddy and Sir Derek Barton.
Today our research covers all aspects of chemistry, as well as the interfaces with biology, materials science, medicine, and physics, and contributes to finding solutions to many challenges facing us globally such as providing sustainable energy, developing new ways of manufacturing, and improving healthcare through new technologies.
You can explore some of our work on 21st century challenges in areas such as developing renewable energy through solar fuels, creating ‘downloadable drugs’ using 3d printers that can ‘print’ chemical reactions, and our work on inorganic biology and its potential use in areas such as medical diagnostics.
Your support for our work can help us provide new scientific insights and technologies and provide opportunity for the brightest students to develop their talents.
You can support Chemistry in the following ways:
1. A gift to the Joseph Black Postgraduate Scholarship Fund in Chemistry
Gifts help us to support the brightest students to enable them to embark on research, working on developing the latest drugs and the most exciting new chemical technologies. Gifts of £500 (or £10 per month for four years) and over are recognised with a naming opportunity through our Gifted Scheme.
2. A gift to name a full Scholarship in Chemistry
Full scholarships for research students are particularly prized, helping to bring the very best and brightest students to Glasgow and to contribute to Glasgow’s reputation as a centre of excellence in Chemistry. Please contact us if you would like to fund and name a full scholarship.
3. A gift to the Frederick Soddy Equipment Fund for teaching and research in Chemistry
Your gifts to the Fund help support the purchase of equipment for teaching and research. Gifts of £500 (or £10 per month for four years) and over are recognised with a naming opportunity through our Gifted Scheme.
