The Mosaic is a collaborative Zine made by the members of the Chemistry & Biochemistry department at UC San Diego. 

This departmental Zine is a printed compilation of original multimedia works (e.g., writing or artwork) open to submissions from all Chemistry & Biochemistry Department stakeholders (undergraduate, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff). This quarterly publication is meant to generate a creative and authentic exchange of thoughts, ideas, and reflections amongst members of all positions in the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department. The publication will be compiled and distributed throughout the department in printed copies by finals week and archived digitally on this website. 

We are generously sponsored for printing costs by The Center and the Chemistry & Biochemistry Department


To showcase all facets of our community, to document and archive joint experiences through self-expression, to communicate these with our community and the public.
