CIMPS

Center for Innovation in Molecular and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CIMPS):

CIMPS represents the institute's core research activity. Scientists at CIMPS have diverse technical backgrounds, spanning advanced molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology, organic and medicinal chemistry, and nanochemistry. Research at CIMPS is supported by external funds such as government grants or industry-sponsored grants, or via internal funds for selected areas. Ph.D. Students and post-doctoral fellows with government fellowships work on government-funded research projects.
