Chemical Biology Research Collaborations

Chemistry is a powerful enabling science making new developments and progress possible in biology and medicine, which could not have been realized without the presence and use of molecules and/or molecular approaches. However biology and medicine determine the areas we would like to explore using our chemistry. Therefore, we are very fortunate that we have a number of collaborations with partners, groups and institutes in order to address important issues in these research areas.
