Chemical & Structural Biology

Prof. Deborah Fass, Head

Secretary: Nicole DorfmanTel. +972-8-934-6570Fax. +972-8-934-3028

Our research combines tools and outlooks of structural biology and synthetic organic chemistry to elucidate, sense, and regulate the activities of biomolecules. We use state-of-the-art techniques in electron microscopy, diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance, molecular dynamics, mass spectrometry, single-molecule spectroscopy, and molecular design. Our department is highly interdisciplinary, at the interface of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
