Founded by Nobel laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences, our Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Mathematics, and Physics have all played a central role in UC San Diego's rapid rise to national and international prominence. Just as it was at its founding, the School of Physical Sciences is broad in scope and inherently interdisciplinary.
Researchers within the school delve into scientific and computational issues that are of critical relevance to all facets of society. We address climate change, fabricate nanoparticles to image tumors and deliver drugs, probe the fundamental nature of matter, trace the evolution of the universe, hunt for elusive sub-atomic particles, and design detection systems for toxins and explosives, to name only some of the faculty's achievements.
Because the physical sciences are fundamental to all disciplines, including engineering, medicine, and biology, we contribute to the education of most undergraduate students at UC San Diego. We are helping to meet California's need for qualified science teachers through the California Teach Science and Math Initiative.
