Biological Chemistry, Biophysics & Bioengineering

The institute applies advances in the chemical, physical, and engineering sciences to enable and enhance life science research. The interdisciplinary research interests and state-of-the-art facilities provide a unique environment for integrative research.

We aim to maintain a world-leading centre of excellence, building on a strong foundation of genuine inter-disciplinary research, a strong and diverse funding record and an extensive extra-mural collaborative network.

A unique complement of infrastructure and facilities required to engage in this activity at the highest level is already in place in; world class cell biology, molecular imaging, atomic force microscopy, tissue/cell culture and bioprocessing facilities, laser and optical laboratories, linked by a high speed data network, all in one building complex.
