About SFBC
News & Seminar

    Founded in August 2011, Synthetic and Functional Biomolecules Center (SFBC) is an interdisciplinary institute at Peking University that aims to promote collaborative research at the interface of chemistry and life sciences.

      The initial research directions in SFBC will focus on the following areas: 1) Epigenetics, 2) Protein chemistry  and  protein evolution, 3) glycobiology, and 4) Synthetic biology. Currently SFBC has 8 faculty members, including a Cheung Kong Lecture Professor, five professors, two associate professors. Members in SFBC have published their work in top-tier journals or magazines including Nature, Cell, Nature Chemical Biology, Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. and J. Am. Chem. Soc.

       We are dedicated to build a world-leading research center that applies chemistry tools and chemical knowledge to explore fundamental biological questions that will ultimately lead to a deep understanding of various life processes and human diseases.
