Pradip Bhowmik, M.S. Class of 1987


After completion of my MS program from UMassD, I attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and received my PhD in Chemistry in 1990. Currently, I am a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). My research interests are in organic chemistry, green chemistry, polymer chemistry, materials chemistry, amd small molecule drugs for cancer therapy.

On UMass Dartmouth Chemistry...

UMassD was one of the finest institutions in the US offering a rigorous MS degree at the time. The close interactions between excellent faculty and students provided a unique opportunity for learning.

On the preparation that UMassD Chem provided...

UMassD prepared me so well that I aced the entrance exams, took minimum courses, and passed all of the cumulative exams with flying colors in my PhD program. I have no words to express my sincere graditute to the faculty of the UMassD chemistry department.
