Computational Biophysics Lab Research groups

The Computational Biophysics Laboratory is composed by an interdisciplinary team of scientists from different backgrounds but all with experience in computational modeling of biological systems and statistical mechanics. Our research focuses on the application of statistical mechanics to soft-matter and complex biological systems. Our goal is to build simple models of natural complex systems, such as proteins, and in doing so learn their fundamental function and copy it into artificial systems.
