Florida State   /   Research   /   REU

Welcome! Our REU Site at the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Florida State University is dedicated to the study of photochemistry and photophysics-the events that take place upon the interaction of light with matter. This is an exciting area of science, with relevance to such important phenomena as information transmission and storage, sensing technologies, solar energy conversion, photodynamic therapy, photocatalysis, and photosynthesis. The REU experience covers a range of diverse research projects and techniques. The faculty guiding REU students are national and international leaders in their areas of chemistry. More information about the program can be found using the links to the left. Applications for summer 2024 are currently being accepted. Apply here! If you have any questions, please send an email to
