Center for Applied Catalysis and Green Chemistry
The Center for Applied Catalysis was established at Seton Hall University in 1997 to assist industrial clients in developing catalytic processes for commercially important reactions. More information »
Center for Academic Industry Partnership
Seton Hall University is seeking donors and partners to support a Center for Academic Industry Partnership in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Funded by a $500,000 seed grant from Sanofi-aventis, the Center for Academic Industry Partnership is an institutional initiative to promote our programs specific to ensuring quality laboratory science practice in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
The Center will enhance current efforts in the training of undergraduate students,
graduate students and industrial scientists through unique programmatic initiatives
to be housed in our new Science and Technology Center, a state-of-the-art research
and training facility. Laboratories will provide the latest in chemical analysis,
scientific instrumentation and computing technology. The Center will bring many successful
activities that have been performed by individual faculty on an ad-hoc basis together
under a single, coordinated roof, so that they may be nurtured and expanded.
The Center for Academic Industry Partnership's initial work will be three-fold:
- Infusing pharmaceutical and industrial laboratory standard practice into Undergraduate Science Laboratory curriculum.
- Creating an exchange program for Chemistry Ph.D. candidates ensuring comprehensive training in both academic laboratory and industrial laboratory environments through fellowships and internships.
- Providing short courses in laboratory techniques and practices for working pharmaceutical scientists.
