Faculty members in the CBI Training Program represent a rich and diverse spectrum of academic departments, including Biophysics, Chemistry, and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, Medicinal Chemistry from the College of Pharmacy, and Biological Chemistry, Pathology, and Pharmacology from the School of Medicine. Their research interests pertain primarily to the characterization and mechanism of biochemical reactions, the control of cellular metabolism, and the mechanism of cell replication. The CBI faculty is engaged in a number of existing multi- disciplinary research efforts at the chemistry biology interface as well as individual research programs in the core disciplines. The principal themes of this research include:

  • Structure and mechanism of metalloproteins and model systems
  • Design and synthesis of biologically active compounds
  • Biomolecular recognition
  • Signal transduction
  • Mechanisms of chemical and biological catalysis
  • Nucleic acid structure-function
