The Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology is based in Firth Court, the historic home of the University of Sheffield. Many of our scientists are following in the footsteps of Sir Hans Krebs, our first Professor of Biochemistry, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1953 for his discovery of the citric acid cycle, known as the Krebs Cycle. His legacy continues in the work of the Krebs Institute, a mechanistic biology research centre that works on projects aimed at the greater understanding of biomolecular processes.
Scientists based in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology also play a leading role in other flagship University of Sheffield research centres including the Florey Institute, which is addressing the challenges of infectious disease and antimicrobial resistance, the Imagine: Imaging Life project, which is pioneering new biological imaging technologies, and the P3 Centre, a translational biology centre encompassing the breadth of plant and soil science expertise at Sheffield.
The scientists and research centres based in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology benefit from access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. These include a Biological NMR Facility, a Biomolecular Interaction Suite, the Wolfson Light Microscopy Facility and the University of Sheffield’s Biological Mass Spectrometry Facility.
