The Institute of Molecular Chemistry (ICB) fosters the chemical study of biological systems and sustainable use of natural resources. The mission of the Institute concerns the research and development of chemical reactions and organic molecules of interest biological, with the aim of understanding their function and exploring their applications. ICB supports chemical research in any sector of life science and green processes, occupying a multi-disciplinary area in which the methods and approaches of organic and bio-organic chemistry are instruments of investigation in biology, microbiology, ecology, pharmacology, medicine, and green energy. In these sectors, the Institute promotes basic and applied research through national and international projects with public and private collaborators in favor of scientific and social progress in the medical, pharmaceutical, agro-food, environmental and biotechnological fields.
