Research GBB Organisation


The Groningen Biomolecular Science and Biotechnology Institute originates from intensive collaboration between research groups with roots in the disciplines Biology and Chemistry. Since 1992 GBB functions as a research institute within the Faculty of Science and Engineering (RUG). From 1993, GBB also functions as a accredited Dutch research school for PhD students; the latest renewed accreditation from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has been obtained in 2009.

At present GBB is composed of 12 research groups, each headed by a full professor. GBB is headed by its own scientific director, who together with supporting executive staff is responsible for the management of the institute. A board of 3 GBB professors advises the director and executive staff, whereas an external and independent Scientific Advisory Board advises both the director and board concerning a.o. developments in research strategy, appointments, and accreditation.
