“Nanomedicine Molecular Science” focuses on molecular reactions in the cells, which constitute the living organism and control its biological activities.

The goal of this project is to develop molecular reaction parameters to quantify and examine such reactions. The studies, therefore, are part of a scientific initiative focusing on cells and have the following main objectives: establishing the theoretical basis of molecular reactions in the cell, and understanding the cellular environment and intracellular chemical reaction mechanisms.

The achievement of these objectives will enhance the understanding of and facilitate multidisciplinary discussion about the system that coordinates molecular reactions in individual cells and living organisms.
