Excellence in Research,
New Chemical Tools, Education & Screening Platform for Switzerland.
The NCCR Chemical Biology is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in research in a new interdisciplinary field: chemical biology.
Our mission is to develop new tools and approaches derived from chemistry in order to understand, visualize and control biological processes. We are also engaged in a platform for chemical screening aimed at developing a new generation of molecules with biological effects.
We also organize a Master programme in Chemical Biology, covering molecular and cellular biology, organic chemistry as well as biophysics at the University of Geneva and the EPFL.
