Structural and Molecular Biology

Structural & molecular biology concerns the physical and molecular basis of biological activity, across a range of size and complexity scales. In this discipline, the structures and dynamics of biomolecules are investigated using a wide array of biophysical and biochemical approaches, with the aim of promoting both basic science and biomedical applications.
