Research Stream Overview
Biomedical chemistry research intersects the traditional disciplines of Cell biology, Physiology, Genetics and Chemistry. Some students also gain some experience with Biophysics. The research questions our FRI students investigate are in the context of better ways to control diseases.
Research questions (2014-2016)
- Probe for cellular carbonyls generated by oxidative stress in live cells in presence of medicinal therapeutics
- Investigate glutamate release by glutamate transporter EAAC1
