Welcome to CMPS!

The Center for Molecular Protein Science (CMPS) brings together scientists active within the fields of biochemistry, molecular biophysics, structural biology, and physical and theoretical chemistry. Our research focuses on major areas of modern biochemistry and molecular biology. We want to understand the molecular mechanisms of biological processes by exploring the structure, dynamics, interactions and function of proteins. For more information on the different research areas covered by CMPS, please visit our Research page .

CMPS offers undergraduate and Master's level courses in biochemistry and biochemical techniques, as well as various courses in biophysical chemistry, NMR spectroscopy, and general physical chemistry. We also host the Master’s program in Biochemistry

For more information on our courses and Master’s program, please see the Education & Masters programme page .

CMPS is a highly integrated center comprising the divisions of Biochemistry and Structural Biology (Faculty of Science) and Biophysical Chemistry (Faculty of Engineering, LTH).
