Biomolecular Interaction Centre

The Biomolecular Interaction Centre (BIC) is a multi-disciplinary research centre dedicated to the study of molecular interactions critical to biological function. Understanding these interactions is central to a range of fundamental sciences, new treatments for disease and a wide range of highly functional products.

The centre was founded in 2007 at the University of Canterbury. It includes researchers from across the Colleges of Science and Engineering and has a growing network that includes collaborators from many of New Zealand’s Crown Research Institutes, universities and Callaghan Innovation. BIC also has a strong and increasing network of international collaborators.
