Director's Laboratory of Structural Biology

Juha Huiskonen: Structural biology of macromolecules and interactions

Our research in the Laboratory of Structural Biology is aimed at understanding the structure and function of biological macromolecules and their complexes, such as molecular machines and viruses. We strive to decipher basic principles in their assembly and evolution. Detailed mechanistic understanding of structures involved in disease is informing rational design of therapies.
