DIVISION OF CHEMICAL ENZYMOLOGY
The department was founded in 1974. It was founded by the group of scientists that had belonged to the Department of Chemical Kinetics where chemical enzymosis environment and the group from the Department of Biokinetics of Belozersky Research Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology. At the time of its foundation the department was headed by corresponding member of USSR Academy of Sciences, Professor Ilya Vasiliyevich Berezin.
Since 1988 the department has been headed by Sergey Dmitriyevich VARFOLOMEYEV.
The major field of study is chemical enzymology.
There are 7 laboratories within the department. The total number of staff of the department is 81 employees (18 Doctors of Science, 53 Candidates of Science).
