We seek to understand the principles underlying protein structure and function, to encode these principles in software, and to use them to create a new world of designed proteins that address modern challenges in medicine and technology. By iterating between computation and laboratory experiments, we continually improve our protein design methods.

We are always looking for new people to join our efforts. Our philosophy is that the more closely interacting a research group is, the better the science and the more fun overall. Click here to learn about available child-care options.
