The School of Chemistry in Birmingham has always been at the forefront of research. Four of our alumni and staff have been recognised with Nobel Prizes in Chemistry and Medicine. Most recently, in 2016 Professor Sir J. Fraser Stoddart was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the fundamental discoveries of mechanical bonds being wielded to make molecular machines.
