Center of Excellence in Chemical Biology
Chemical biology is a scientific discipline spanning the fields of chemistry and biology, involving the application of chemical techniques and tools, often compounds produced through synthetic chemistry, to the study and manipulation of biological systems.
The overall objective of the Center of Excellence in Chemical Biology (CECB) is to boost top level research in chemical biology for providing tools to study and fight against infectious diseases.
- Develop an infrastructural platform for research in infection-related chemical biology.
- Provide new chemical tools for research in infection biology.
- Provide validated drug targets for development of anti-infectives.
