The chemical diversity of DNA, RNA, proteins and other biomolecules, as well as the interactions between them, create the  complexity that underlies human development.  Scientists are applying chemistry tools and chemical knowledge to explore fundamental biological questions that will ultimately lead to a deeper understanding of life processes and human disease.  Join us to learn about this emerging discipline and the collaboration that positions PKU and UChicago as pioneers in this field.

DNA、RNA、蛋白质和其他生物分子的化学多样性,以及它们之间的相互作用,造就了人类发展的复杂性。科学家们正在利用化学工具和化学知识来探索基本生物学问题,以期深化对生命过程和人类疾病的理解。我们诚邀您共同了解这一新兴学科,以及为北京大学和芝加哥大学奠定该领域先驱地位的科研合作项目。
