Online Learning.

Online learning resources elaborated by some of the preeminent ACBI members are available to whet the appetite of aspiring learners of chemical biology. Most of the course features are accessible for free of charge and can be taken at your own pace.

Browse through the online courses listed below, and dive into learning the interdisciplinary field of chemical biology in an interactive, reciprocal, and dynamic manner.


The Chemistry of Life

Learn how to generate ideas at the interface between chemistry and biology

Chemistry and biology are traditionally taught as separate subjects at the high school level, where students memorize fundamental scientific principles that are universally accepted. However, at the university level and in industry, we learn that science is not as simple as we once thought. We are constantly confronted by questions about the unknown and required to use creative, integrated approaches to solve these problems. By bringing together knowledge from multidisciplinary fields, we are empowered with the ability to generate new ideas. The goal of this course is to develop skills for generating new ideas at the interface between chemistry and biology by analysing pioneering studies.

Instructor: Dr. Motonari Uesugi, Kyoto University

Joined by Drs. Orlando Scharer, Takeaki Ozawa, Bengang Xing, and Young-Tae Chang, and more!

Basic Analytical Chemistry

Analytical chemistry takes a prominent position among all fields of experimental sciences, ranging from fundamental studies of Nature to industrial or clinical applications. Analytical chemistry covers the fundamentals of experimental and analytical methods and the role of chemistry around us.


This course introduces the principles of analytical chemistry and provides how these principles are applied in chemistry and related disciplines - especially in life sciences, environmental sciences and geochemistry.


This course, regardless of your background, will teach you fundamental analytical concepts and their practical applications. 


By the end of the course, you will deeply understand analytical methodologies in a systematic manner. Finally, this course will help you develop critical, independent reasoning that you can apply to new problems in chemistry and its related fields.

This course is for anyone interested in analytical sciences.

Instructor: Dr. Takeaki Ozawa, The University of Tokyo

Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Inspired by the online teaching practices taken by Professors Uesugi and Ozawa, Dr. Bengang Xing of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, started to record his own lectures and incorporated the videos into his classes at NUT as a teaching aid, and for shared use among ACBI members and learners of chemical biology.
