The Center for Photochemical Sciences, established in 1985, evolved from research activities of faculty in the Department of Chemistry at Bowling Green State University to make more effective use of focused resources in the photochemical sciences by assembling teams of scientists collaborating in an interactive, interdisciplinary research setting.

Center members include BGSU faculty from the Departments of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, and Biological Sciences.  Its unifying intellectual theme focuses on the study of the interaction of light with physical, chemical, and biological systems, and on the quest for practical applications of that basic knowledge, which stimulate new technology.  The Center serves to expand the synergy of research, teaching, and applications in the photochemical sciences.
