Almost all aspect of life are engineered at the molecular level, and without understanding molecules we can only have a sketchy understanding of life itself

The Biochemistry and Structural Biology Unit (BSU) at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO - Milan - Italy) provides high-quality technical support, training and equipment in recombinant protein production, biochemistry, biophysics and structural biology (X-ray crystallography and CryoEM).
The BSU works in close contact with the Principal Investigators to allow the study of the structure and function of biological macromolecules, thus enabling the molecular understanding of cellular processes.
