Advanced Chemistry and Biomolecular Science I - CBMS188

This unit is offered on a pass/fail basis.

This unit is a full-year unit based on contemporary topics in chemistry and biomolecular sciences. It is comprised of weekly research-focussed seminars and discussions. This unit caters for advanced students who are strong in chemistry and/or science and who are interested in pursuing a scientific career. It aims to encourage well-qualified students to reach their full potential. This unit is an extension of CBMS107 and CBMS108. The unit will treat some topics in more depth and introduce others that are not covered in the regular undergraduate units. The weekly one-hour discussion sessions will also address recent advances in the molecular sciences. Student discussions are led by research scientists of the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences and each student is mentored by a third year advanced chemistry student. In addition, all students are encouraged to participate in the research activities of the department over the summer recess through vacation scholarships.
