Research areas within Biochemistry
- Molecular interactions, enzymology and drug discovery - Helena Danielson
The aim of our research is to improve the understanding of molecular interactions and to apply this knowlede for drug discovery, primarily using enzymes as targets.
- Enzymology and directed evolution - Mikael Widersten
We study structure/function relationships in enzymes and use what we learn for the development of new and useful biocatalysts for specific and efficient catalysis of reactions generating chiral and pro-chiral product molecules.
- Molecular interactions in cell function and dysfunction - Ylva Ivarsson
We focus on interactions between linear motifs and peptide binding domains and aim to contribute with novel insights into the human protein-protein interaction networks in health and diseases.
- Structural Biochemistry - Doreen Dobritzsch
Our research aims at the elucidation of protein structures and functions in order to further our understanding of the relationship between the two.
- Biochemical technology: Bioresource technology and enzyme nanotechnology - Gunnar Johansson
Lignocellulose degradation and Heterogeneous enzyme catalysis.
- Structural dynamics - Erik Marklund
Our research aims to unravel the dynamics and interactions of proteins and protein complexes. To this end, we work from a foundation of advanced computations that are matched with experiments, where mass-spectrometric techniques such as ion-mobility spectrometry currently are of particular interest.
- Computational biochemistry - Lynn Kamerlin
The Kamerlin Lab develops and applies computational tools to solve important problems at the chemistry-biology interface.
