Our history

Named in 2009, the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences has existed under many guises over the years.

It was previously known as the School of Molecular & Microbial Sciences, which was formed in 2000 after a merger between the then departments of Chemistry, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Parasitology. Chemistry was one of the University's foundation departments and its history dates to 1911. Other departments formed after World War II.
