Chemical Biology Institute

Chemical BiologyThe Chemical Biology Institute at West Campus will comprise a dozen laboratories focused on discovering the science of molecules in the context of living systems and the application of these discoveries to problems in biology and medicine. The pharmaceutical heritage of the West Campus, with its highly advanced infrastructure and sophisticated instrumentation, makes it a natural site for research at the interface between chemistry and biology. Researchers in the Institute will capitalize on chemical sequence space to explore biology and exploit biological diversity to expand chemistry.
