The COVID-19 Resources tab has been updated! This page now contains procedures from the Department of Chemistry on returning to research activities and a letter from outgoing Department Head Martin Gruebele and incoming Department Head Catherine Murphy expanding on these procedures. This page also contains the anonymous reporting form so any violations to these procedures can be reported. These submissions will be regularly communicated to and reviewed by the Chemistry Department.
