What is chemical biology? Voices by NCB.
Our group was quoted in the "Voices of Chemical Biology" series currently underway by Nature Chemical Biology. It is really fun to see all of the diverse views and perspectives from members of the community, demonstrating the key strengths of our field.
"Chemical biology is both the application of chemical approaches and tools to biology and the application of biological molecules and systems to chemistry. Chemical biologists often invent new tools and methods, but they also pursue pure biological research in a way that is colored by the perspective of a chemist. A key strength of chemical biology is that it is not hampered by rigid definitions, and can therefore embrace new ideas and shift directions more freely than other fields."
