Arieh Warshel Institute of Computational Biology, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen
Arieh Warshel Institute of Computational Biology (the “Institute”) is the first Nobel Laureate Lab established in CUHKSZ. The Nobel Laureate Lab is one of the important parts for Shenzhen "Top Ten Action Plan". The Institute is headed by Arieh Warshel, the Nobel laureate in Chemistry in 2013.
Arieh Warshel Institute of Computational Biology is intended to become one of the world’s most advanced computational biology centers, conducting research on cutting-edge biotechnologies (structural biology, molecular medicine, multi-scale biomolecule simulations, high-throughput Genome Sequencing analysis and translational research of gene diagnosis technology). Professor Warshel wishes to turn this institute into a platform where top researchers from around the world can collaborate and contribute. Meanwhile, the institute is to serve as a hub to boost significant global cooperative projects and to become a multidisciplinary educational center, nurturing young computational biologists.
The Institute will help to attract excellent researchers and open up new opportunities for Longgang and Shenzhen with respect to life science industry.
