The Abrams group is focuses on developing novel approaches to teaching introductory chemistry that excite students across disciplines.  Recent projects include the development of the Boston University Chemical Writing Program (BUCWP), the LA program, out-of-class activities to strengthen visual models for quantum concepts, and more.

Additionally, students in the Abrams group study biomimetic oligomers (foldamers) using molecular dynamics simulations.
