Biophysical Chemistry laboratory (BCL)
University of Tehran, IBB
The Biophysical Chemistry Laboratory (BCL) was established in 1986 in the Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics (IBB) as a main base and the mother of Biophysical Chemistry in Iran. BCL is famous worldwide in the research area of Thermodynamics of Protein Denaturation and Biomacromolecular Interaction.
This laboratory enjoys from advanced facilities and it is equipped with advanced apparatuses for the research. LBC is equipped with Nano Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC); Nano Isothermal Titration Calorimeters (ITC); modern Circular Dichroism (CD) Spectropolarometry, Sensitive Densitometer and Tensiometer; Fluorescence and Uv-vis Spectrophotometers, Microviscometers and Biochemical and Biophysical methods as well as and Computational facilities.
BCL is an appropriate place for the promotion of the research and science in the field of Biochemistry, Nanobiophysics, Biotechnology and Biophysical Chemistry. BCL is a suitable laboratory for training PhD students and postdoctorate researchers, associate researchers and sabbatical leaves for faculty members at national and international levels. Faculty members, postdoctorates, students and foreign research associates using the facilities of this laboratory which have published hundreds of full research articles in international prestigious journals. BCL is an appropriate laboratory for supporting and promoting the research of scientists and researchers at national and international levels.
BCL is advanced nano-laboratory with accurate equipment, skilled technicians and capable of serving linked with Nanotechnology Laboratory Network (LNN). BCL is accessible to LNN and it is ready to make a good service in various aforementioned area. UNESCO Chair on Interdisciplinary Research in Diabetes and Center of Excellence in Biothermodynamics are lined with BCL.
