Biological Chemistry

The Core.jpg

Chemical Biology research uses the tools of chemistry and synthesis to understand biology and disease pathways at the molecular level. Advanced Biological Chemistry interests include diverse topics such as nucleic acids, DNA repair, bioconjugate chemistry, peptides and peptidomimetics, glycoscience, biomolecular structure and function, imaging, and biological catalysis. Biophysical Chemistry represents the union of Chemistry, Physics, and Biology using a variety of experimental and theoretical approaches to understand the structure and function of biological systems. Advanced Biophysical Chemistry use different techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance, x-ray crystallography, ultra-fast spectroscopy, as well as statistical and quantum mechanical theory to study the molecular details of important biological processes, such as: protein-protein and protein-nucleic acid interactions, protein structure and function, enzyme mechanisms, photosynthesis and neuronal transduction.
