The Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry is the University of Cambridge's chemistry department. It was formed from a merger in the early 1980s of two separate departments that had moved into the Lensfield Road building decades earlier: the Department of Physical Chemistry (originally led by Professor Ronald Norrish FRS, Nobel Laureate; the department was previously located near the Old Cavendish in Free School Lane - see photo) and the Department of Chemistry (that included theoretical chemistry and which was led by Lord Alexander R. Todd FRS, Nobel Laureate) respectively. Research interests in the department cover a broad of chemistry ranging from molecular biology to geophysics.[1] The department is located on the Lensfield Road, next to the Panton Arms on the South side of Cambridge. As of 2015 the department is home to around 200 postdoctoral research staff, over 250 postgraduate students, around sixty academic staff.[2] In December 2020, it was renamed for 30 years in recognition of a donation from Yusuf Hamied, an alumnus of the department.[3][4]

Research

The Department’s research is organised around five Research Interest Groups (RIGs):[5]

In addition the Chemistry of Health Building houses the Centre for Misfolding Diseases, the Chemistry of Health Incubator and the Molecular Production and Characterisation Centre (MPACC).[6]
