How is interaction of proteins with membranes of specific composition and shape used for cell organization,  protein targeting, and modification of the protein functionality? Find out HERE.

How protein self-assembly leads to the formation of structures and materials with exceptional properties including amyloid fibrils or virus capsids? Find out HERE.

These are two main questions we address using tools of computer simulations and theory. We develop and apply new computational models and methods with a multiscale approach that can explain and predict complex phenomena occurring in biomolecular systems. We are mainly focused on protein-membrane and protein-protein interactions that regulate cellular signaling, transport, are part of our immune system, and as such are related to a number of deadly diseases ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease.
