The University of Oklahoma is Oklahoma’s flagship university and its Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has achieved a national reputation for quality research. The department has 30 full-time faculty members and more than 100 graduate students.

The research and administrative functions of the department are housed in the new $80 million Stephenson Life Sciences Research Center, located on OU’s Research Campus. The completion of the 160,000-square-foot center was made possible by a generous $18 million gift from Charles and Peggy Stephenson. Completed in July 2010, it houses chemists, biochemists and other life sciences researchers.
