"Molecular Biology" is defined by both an approach (a way to do life science) and a subject (a way to think about life science). Theses underlie our drive to understand molecules – DNA, RNA, proteins and metabolites – that are the fundamental units of a living system. The MB&B department engages in research and teaching from the perspective of molecular biophysics, protein biochemistry, molecular genetics, and cellular imaging; all approaches that permit observation and manipulation of molecules at different levels of scale.
