“Biochemistry and molecular biology are fundamental tools in our search for a deeper understanding of the mechanistic principles that govern nature. In the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry we use these tools in fields as diverse as immunology, parasitology, and virology; vascular biology, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease; bacterial metabolism, drug discovery and structural biology.

We love what we do and are lucky to do it. Welcome to MB&B – Where Discovery Begins!”
