AIMMS provides complementary disciplines in chemistry and biology to study molecules in interaction with biological systems and the environment. We aim for an integrative fundamental understanding of biological processes at the molecular level. We have experimental platforms for the discovery and development of drugs and therapeutics (proteins, antibodies and other biologics), for several biological model organisms, and for advanced analytics of molecules in the environment and biological systems. We combine these experimental techniques with bioinformatics, (molecular) modeling and systems biology for data integration. We study chemical bonds, molecules, proteins, snake venoms, toxicity pathways, microbes, Zebra fish and humans.
The research groups involved in AIMMS belong to:
- Centre for Integrative Bio-informatics at the Faculty of Science
- Department of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Faculty of Science
- Department of Environment and Health at the Faculty of Science
- Department of Molecular Cell Biology at the Faculty of Science
