Lynn Kamerlin - Wallenberg Scholar

2019-12-05

Over just a few decades certain enzymes have developed the ability to break down organophosphates – toxins found in pesticides and nerve gas. Lynn Kamerlin is using advanced computations to understand this rapid evolution. The aim is to tailor enzymes and help develop new treatments for organophosphate poisoning.

It seems logical that Lynn is researching in computational biology as she speaks passionately about her favorite subjects, and tells how she wrote her first computer program when she was four years old.

“I love chemistry and math. Biology is founded on chemistry after all, since we are all made up of molecules and chemical reactions. My research into how enzymes evolve combines these three fields.”
