University at Buffalo's strategic vision

Molecular Recognition in Biological Systems and Bioinformatics (MRBSB)


Pioneering new approaches to medical and biological research, our interdisciplinary teams of scientists are creating new knowledge and working to translate their discoveries to bettering human health.

Bringing together researchers from the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences; the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences; and several departments within the College of Arts and Sciences, faculty affiliated with Molecular Recognition in Biological Systems and Bioinformatics examine complex interactions at the intersection of biology and chemistry.

Research addresses all levels of biology from the atomic and molecular to the intact organism, and all areas, whether it be chemical, molecular, genetic, cellular, tissue, organ or whole organ systems.
