Using Chemical Biology to Promote Transdisciplinary Research
Chemical Biology is the use of chemistry to promote biological knowledge. More specifically, CCB is interested in discovering and utilizing powerful molecules to gain a better understanding on selected biological pathways. The Centre for Chemical Biology at the Universiti Sains Malaysia (CCB USM) is a world-class, cutting-edge research centre that is borderless, colourless, and genderless. Conceptualized at the beginning of 2008 and officially endorsed by the Ministry of Higher Education on 3 February 2009, the challenge for CCB USM is to create a vibrant research environment with state-of-the-art facilities and more importantly, driven exciting research questions.
Our Mission: Driving Inspirations into Reality
We aspire to be the place for:-
- Inoculation the Transdisciplinary Research mentality
- Nurturing of the next generation young researchers
- Excellence in administration and governance
- Smart partnership in collaboration, consultation and service
