The Laboratory of Theoretical Biochemistry (CNRS Institute of Chemistry, associated with Paris Diderot University) consists of one single team and was created at IBPC in 1958 as the Laboratoire de Biochimie Théorique (LBT). Our field is theoretical and computational biochemistry, at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, and computing.
Our strategic objectives are twofold: invent simulation algorithms to reproduce and predict physical properties of biomolecules either in vitro or in the cell, and understand the molecular or conformational factors responsible for the biological functions of living systems, and diseases. The equilibrium between these two aspects is the key point of the laboratory policy.
The LBT is organized as a team of independent researchers with complementary interests and domains of expertise, both in method development and in biophysical, biochemical, and biomedical applications. Advances in each of these domains emerge from the association of different sets of researchers around individual projects.
