What Is Chemical Biology?
what do chemical biologist do?
* Biologist learn how living things work, how they interact with each other, and how they evolve.
* Work increases our understanding about the natural world.
* Address personal well being and worldwide concern like threats to human health.
* Study cells under a microscope.
Fields Available To Chemists:
* Chemical and Development
* Materials (polymers, metals, and other solid devices)
* Medicinal Chemistry
* Forensic Science
* Museum Conservation
At Yale, graduate studies in chemical biology combine the Chemistry Department, Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics & Development Department, Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology & Physiology Department and make it into a program. To get into this program, you go through Biology retreats, monthly in-house seminar program, and an annual chemical biology symposium.
