Welcome to the web site of the Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CIQUS). Here you will find information about the research areas, groups and scientists that comprise this center, and also about its organization, facilities, services and other data of interest. CIQUS is a member of the Singular Research Centers Network, a core structure of  the Campus of International Excellence– Campus Vida project, and it is focused towards the application of transdisciplinary strategies to solve relevant problems in the field of biological chemistry and in the development of novel functional materials.


CiQUS researcher Eddy Sotelo will participate as invited speaker in the International  Symposium “Adenosine Receptors: Present and Future Challenges”, which will be held March 2-3, 2015, at Uppsala University, Sweden.


The congress will be configured around 16 different specialized simposia in the most diverse fields of Chemistry
