Molecular and Biological Chemistry

Modern science is continuously leaning towards Chemistry. In Life Sciences, Materials or Environment, researchers realize that pertinent answers are hidden at the molecular scale.
From molecules to life

Key activities spread across the chiral synthesis of molecules with biological interests, elucidation of biological mechanisms, molecular conversion of energy, catalytic processes, biosensors and development of new analytical tools.

In the heart of this process, chemistry at EPFL benefits from an international environment with more than 70% of research fellows from aborad.

Program’s Objectives

The Master in Molecular and Biological Chemistry is a research program with a strong focus on practice in laboratory.
