Chemical Biology is...

The use of chemical tools and technologies to study biological problems
This includes the use of new molecules, new measurement tools and novel calculation and modelling approaches.

Chemical biology has historically been an interdisciplinary approach that employed chemical synthesis to address biological questions. However, as this research area evolved, it quickly absorbed more and more aspects of the physical sciences (experimental as well as theoretical tools and techniques), shifting its definition to a much wider emphasis encompassing all molecular physical sciences approaches that can elucidate research problems in the life sciences (biological and medical). This view has been adopted by the leading journals in chemical biology, and is the one used by the Institute of Chemical Biology (ICB).
