The Biochemistry Department at the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences aims to understand the structural and dynamic properties of living systems on scales from molecules to cells. We employ state-of-the-art equipment for X-ray crystallography, NMR and EPR spectroscopy, cryo-electron microscopy and multiple forms of fluorescence microscopy.
Our research is centred on the themes of Structural Biology and Cell Dynamics. Within Cell Dynamics we have particular focus on the areas of Chromosome Biology & Cytoskeletal Networks and Photosynthesis, Bioenergetics & Microbial Physiology.
