Structural Biology of Macromolecules and Interactions
Laboratory of Structural Biology
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. We are affiliated with the Institute of Biotechnology, Helsinki Institute of Life Science HiLIFE and the Molecular and Integrative Biosciences Research Programme at the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
