Our Research


DBB makes up the majority of Stockholm University's part of SciLifeLab. Here, the department conducts research in biochemistry, bioinformatics, cryo-EM, pharmaceuticals, and DNA sequencing.




The department, in its current and previous shapes, has a long tradition of both broad and extensive research activities at the highest level. The name DBB (Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics) was created in 2001, when two departments – the Department of Biochemistry and the Department of Biophysics – merged into one joint department. In 2018, the Department of Neurochemistry joined DBB, but without a name change. In 2022, the National Resource Center for Chemistry Teachers (KRC) also became part of DBB.
