Research

Our researches focus on structure, dynamics, and functions of biomolecules and molecular complexes. We develop computational approaches for more efficient and accurate modeling of  biomolecules and their interactions. We also apply these methodologies to study various physically and biologically important questions. Here are the list on-going and potential research directions.

1. Inhibition of islet amyloid polypeptide aggregation in type-II diabetes

2. Interactions between nanomaterials and biomolecules

3. Protein misfolding and amyloid aggregation

4. RNA folding, 3D structure determination, and RNA design

5. Protein folding, structure prediction, and conformational dynamics

6. Molecular recognition, Ligand-Receptor Docking, and Drug Screening

7. Post-translational modifications

8. Protein engineering and design

9. Oestoporosis: Role of osteoclast-specific V-ATPases
