Research Environment


The Principal investigators (PIs) at ITbM are world-leading researchers in the fields of synthetic chemistry, plant and animal science, as well as theoretical chemistry. Each PI leads their own research group, but the flexible and interactive framework of each group enables the creation of laboratories that extends beyond the bounds of research groups and fields. With "Mix" being the main keyword at ITbM, we have set up "Mix-Labs", which are large lab spaces where organic synthesis of molecules, biochemical experiments and theoretical calculations are carried out in close proximity. This integrative environment brings together researchers from different groups and fields, enabling interactive discussions on a daily basis. The ITbM Research Award has also been established to acknowledge and provide funding to interdisciplinary research proposals by young ITbM researchers in order to enhance further mixing of research areas.
