Understanding life at molecular level

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 Helsinki Institute of Life Science HiLIFE and the Research Programme in Molecular and Integrative Biosciences at the Fac­ulty of Bio­lo­gical and En­vir­on­mental Sci­ences.
