Chemical Biology and Therapeutics Science

The Chemical Biology and Therapeutics Science (CBTS) Program at the Broad Institute brings together a talented and diverse group of researchers that share a deep commitment to advancing biology and medicine through the use of chemistry and related molecular approaches. Recent advances have expanded the scope of chemical biology and therapeutics science to include: 

  • Breakthroughs in the use of macromolecules to study biology and modify our genomes and proteomes in therapeutically relevant ways
  • The development of technologies that have transformed how small-molecule and macromolecular structure space can be explored to rapidly identify molecules with remarkable biological properties
  • The innovative use of chemistry to provide an unprecedented view of previously unseen processes in living systems.
