Researchers in this field harness and manipulate cellular and biomolecular processes towards the development of new products to benefit mankind.

Biotechnology, genomics, biomedicine, environmental science, and sustainability dominate the list of research clusters that UBC has identified as strengths and opportunities for future discovery, innovation, and education in the life sciences. The availability of high-throughput experimentation facilities allows our researchers to develop a systems-level understanding of the complex interplay between the genome, proteome and metabolome, and investigate biological processes at unprecedented rates and scales.
