Manchester Centre for Biophysics and Catalysis (MCBC)


MCBC is a state-of-the-art cross disciplinary platform technology centre integrating biophysical, structural, and computational methods to address contemporary problems in catalysis and the dynamical properties of biological macromolecules. By going beyond simple structure determination of biological molecules MCBC is driving the new ‘dynamics determines function’ paradigm through temporal analysis of dynamic transitions relevant to biological function and catalysis from the femtosecond to second timescale.
