Protein and Nucleic Acid Chemistry Division
The objectives of the Division are to gain insights into human biology and disease at the molecular level with a view to developing strategies for diagnosis and treatment.
Work in the Division focuses on biological processes central to immunity and cancer, and uses molecular, cellular and transgenic approaches, exploiting genomics, proteomics and molecular evolution.
In 2012 a new chemistry-oriented Centre for Chemical and Synthetic Biology (CCSB) was established, to help support the Division’s work in synthetic biology and strengthen its chemical expertise.
