Partner Institutes

The IBL represents the core of modern biological research at Leiden and we interact closely with the other life science Partner Institutes in the faculty:

Leiden Institute of Chemistry (LIC)

The LIC includes research in Chemistry and Life Sciences. Our environment and quality of life is largely determined by chemistry, so teaching and research at the forefront of molecular and life sciences is of great importance for our future.

The Leiden Advanced Centre for Drug Research (LACDR)

The LACDR is one of the leading academic centres in the world in advancing innovative drug research, developing knowledge and expertise crucial for drug discovery, evaluation and (clinical) application. This also involves the fundamental understanding of efficacy and safety of drugs.
