Research groups 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 knowledge for drug discovery, primarily using enzymes as targets.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Computational biochemistry - Lynn Kamerlin
    We develop and apply computational tools to solve important problems at the chemistry-biology interface.
  • 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.
  • Time resolved structural biology of photoactive proteins - Sebastian Westenhoff
    Our aim is to understand the structural dynamics of biological photoactive systems using a variety of methods, such as serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX), nucleic magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM). 
  • 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.
