University of Leicester
The Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology was created in 2016 to bring together established strengths in structural biology, chemical biology and single-molecule research from across the Colleges. The Institute takes advantage of synergies in research technologies and approaches to deliver major advances in both fundamental and translational research.
