Chemical Biology

Chemical Biology is an interdisciplinary research area with a focus on using chemistry to solve biological problems. We have invested in infrastructure to bridge gaps between chemistry and biology, including state-of-the-art X-ray diffractometer for macromolecular crystallography, NMR, confocal microscope, mass spectrometer, ultrafast transient aborption laser system, protein production and cell culture facilities. Our research groups embrace a collaborative culture to explore the chemistry of biomolecules and build chemical tools to help answer biological questions.
