My laboratory combines tools from computational structural biology, like
molecular dynamics simulations and Monte Carlo, with simple experimental
assays, like flow chamber experiments, to unravel the molecular basis behind
biological processes like the blood coagulation cascade and cellular adhesion.
You can find a list of publications here.
Examples of projects in my laboratory include:
1) The function of von Willebrand Factor.
2) Polymerization of fibrin molecules.
3) Allostery in cellular adhesion.
4) Orientation of protein molecules on material surfaces.
