The Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden (CBCS) is a national research infrastructure for academic investigators throughout Sweden and consists of two nodes, one at Karolinska Institutet and one at Umeå University. CBCS coordinates, and makes available, a powerful and integrated platform for the discovery, development and utilization of small molecules and chemical tools for life science applications in close collaboration with academic research groups.

CBCS provides expertise, support and experimental resources within assay development, computational chemistry, cheminformatics, chemical library screening and development, medicinal/synthetic chemistry, and target identification. The facilities comprise compound handling labs (hosting the SciLifeLab Compound Collection of ca 200,000 molecules), screening labs (microtiter format liquid handling robotics and a wide range of plate readers and high content screening microscope), and chemistry labs (equipment and instrumentation for organic chemistry synthesis and analysis).


A full CBCS publication list can be found in the SciLifeLab publication database.
