Doc Kieft Summer Research Program? Scholars. Doc Kieft Summer Research Program​ Scholars.

Only at Monmouth

The Richard “Doc” Kieft Endowment allows up to a dozen students work on  summer research with faculty and 14 students to present their work at the National American Chemical Society Meeting.

Haldeman Endowment funds online access to current research journals, the latest books and other periodical publications.

LeSuer Endowment provides acquisition of scientific instrumentation.

Knox Endowment allows the department to promote interactions with Industrial partners.

Labs and equipment

The biology, chemistry and biochemistry departments have well-equipped laboratory facilities housed with other departments in our Center for Science and Business. The Center for Science and Business features an animal laboratory, a laboratory for zoology and botany, a cell and genetics lab, a molecular lab, and a human anatomy lab with a cadaver.

Our labs have equipment small schools can’t always offer


Specialized for mobile applications, the Griffin 450 is used for chemical detection and identification and can provide lab quality chemical analysis outside the lab.


Spectrometers are scientific instruments used to separate and measure spectral components of a physical phenomenon. A mass spectrometer measures the spectrum of the masses of the atoms or molecules present in a gas. Our labs feature a Thermo/Nicolet Nexus FTIR, Agilent UV-Vis Spectrometer with temperature controller, Thermo NanoDrop Spectrometry and Anasazi EFT-60 NMR Spectrometry.


The Waters HPLC features advanced programmability, dual wavelength capability, reduced optical bandwidth and exceptional linearity to provide the highest performance in UV/VIS detection for HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography) analyses.

Honestly, there are too many things to list

Additionally, our labs feature a Visocotek GPC with RI detector, Varian Atomic Absorption, Perkin Elmer Fluorescence and a BioRad Gel Doc200 Digital Imaging System. Not sure what any of this stuff is? The point is, there isn’t much our students can’t do in our lab spaces. They can be truly creative and innovative when designing experiments,. Resources are not a barrier.
