Chemical Biology and Therapeutics Science
The primary mission of Chemical Biology and Therapeutics Science (CBTS) Program at the Broad Institute is to support community engagement in innovative chemical biology and therapeutics research.
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.
