Biomolecular Science

Biomolecular Science focuses on:

  • Using molecular, cellular and chemical tools to investigate mechanisms of cell function.
  • Novel drug discovery and synthesis, drug formulation and site-specific drug delivery.
  • Designing biomaterials and bio-based products.
  • The mechanisms of action of pharmaceuticals at the cellular and molecular level.
  • The molecular and cellular aspects of the immune system in response to pathogenic and non-pathogenic micro-organisms.
  • Characterization of biomolecular interactions.

Students achieve these goals through the use of biological and chemical research methods.
