Computational Enzymology and Protein Engineering
Our goal is to develop methods for rational design of pharmaceuticals and functional proteins specially adapted for various applications in medicine and biotechnology.
In our research, we use computational modelling and simulations to improve our understanding of how small and large molecules interact with each other and how dynamics and functionality are affected by their structures. We are particularly interested in understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms that regulate binding, inhibition and catalysis of ligands in proteins. Through collaborations with experimental groups, we can compare our predictions with experiments, and thereby improve our models and develop new methods for calculating physico-chemical properties that expand our understanding of different biological systems.
