Chemical Biology

Chemical Biology is a multidisciplinary area of research at the interface between chemistry and biology.

The Department currently conducts research within diversity-oriented synthesis, lipid, carbohydrate, and peptide chemistry, and use small organic molecules to approach a wide variety of challenges in the field.

Current focus is directed against cancer, inflammatory disease, drug delivery and plant cell wall biology and biotechnology. Research efforts are aimed at the development of screening technology, new chemical probes, diagnostic tools, and lead compounds for drug discovery.
