ZMB Research Programme III

ZMB Research Programme III Molecular and Chemical Cell Biology

Molecular and chemical cell biology is an interdisciplinary research programme connecting molecular cell biology and genetics with chemistry and structural biology. Scientists of the participating disciplines collaborate to advance the understanding of basic molecular mechanisms of important biological processes. The analysis of regulation and deregulation of key pathways is linking basic biology with pathophysiology. The groups engaged in this programme are distinguished by longstanding expertise in their fields and are applying state of the art molecular biological, chemical and biophysical tools in systems ranging from in vitro reconstitution, cell culture and tissue explants to whole organisms.
