The laboratory is highly interdisciplinary combining techniques across molecular modeling and experiments.
The main goal of our research is to build proteins and small-molecules with therapeutic properties. Generally, we use a combination of computational molecular modeling methods (ROSETTA, MD, docking, computer scripting, etc) to theoretically predict interactions between a designed molecule and a drug target. To validate our modeling efforts, in the next step, our designs are functionally assessed by experimental techniques. Here we employ a range of basic biochemistry techniques for protein expression/purification, molecular biology, determination of molecular interactions, etc.
The laboratory is situated at Linnaeus University in Kalmar as part of the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.
