We are physicists, chemists, biologists, and computer scientists, who address pressing questions in molecular biology of the cell signaling in health and disease. We develop computational methods and workflows by combining frameworks of molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, and molecular evolution with multi-resolution experimental data. Current emphasis is on functional lipids in membrane-associated phenomena, protein folding and interactions in complex environments, and plasma membrane cell signaling.
