Chemical Biology Discussion Group
Chemical tools providing insight into biological function
The field of chemical biology uses chemical tools to provide insight into biological function and develop solutions for life sciences, biotechnology, and human health. The field also offers small molecules and tools that can be used to manipulate chemical and biological systems with unprecedented molecular precision, which is an essential approach in drug design.
Our portfolio of events and publications in Chemical Biology encompasses chemistry-based technology— such as proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, and glycomics—as well as synthetic and systems biology work when inspired and supported by chemical tools or aimed at engineering biological systems to perform a new type of chemical transformation.
The Chemical Biology Discussion Group also serves as the Organic Topical Group for the American Chemical Society’s New York Chapter.
