Chemical Biology is an emerging discipline that sits at the interface of traditional chemistry and biology.

It draws on the tools and ideas of modern Physical Sciences (e.g. Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Engineering) and applies these to the solution of biological problems at the molecular level.

It is a discipline that is perfectly poised to address the next great challenge in biological science – to understand how gene products are used in and interact with the cellular environment.

The research element provides physical scientists with the ability to bridge disparate fields and gain the confidence to grapple with biomolecular research in a multidisciplinary environment.
