Chemical Biology

By conceiving and designing new molecules, we can develop new medicines, biomaterials, and devices and research genes and new proteins.

In this specialization we approach biomedical problems from a molecular perspective. Researchers simulate extant biological systems, so as to build upon them and develop new materials with new functions or properties. Another category of research involves decoding the molecular mechanisms behind such diseases as Alzheimer's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob.

Research is grouped in the following research groups:
