Chemistry and Molecular PharmacologyLaboratory of Molecular Biophysics
ICREA Research Professor, ERC Consolidator Grant
A high resolution description of the structure and dynamics of proteins is a very useful tool to study the properties and the function of these important biomacromolecules and, most importantly, to understand how changes in sequence or environment can lead to disease. The research work carried out at the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics aims, on the one hand, at developing methods to probe the fluctuations of the structure of proteins by combining experimental data and molecular simulations and, on the other hand, at understanding how changes in such motions relate to the molecular recognition of proteins, to their function and disease.

The ARS Symposium takes place every two years with the goal of promoting the interactions within the ARS research laboratories and with the rest of RNA research community, both in research labs and in industry. The focus of the meeting is on the evolution, structure, function and biotechnology of ARS, and their canonical and non-canonical roles in health and disease.
