Department of Biochemistry

Research at the Department of Biochemistry

Our research focuses on the study of cellular proteins with an emphasis on structural aspects such as interactions, folding, engineering, structure determination and prediction. We believe that the employment of quantitative approaches is essential to progress in our endeavors.

Our key research areas are:

The common focus on proteins brought about synergies and allowed the department to become a major player in protein science. As a consequence of this the department has a high publication output and more than half of our research groups participate in leading national and international programs. 5 of our 6 groups have been awarded prestigious ERC grants.
