Welcome to the Perez lab

Molecular recognition group

Molecular interactions dictate life. They are responsible for the structure (e.g. folding to the native state of a protein) and dynamics of macromolecules — and those in turn dictate the molecules’ functionality. Most macromolecules satisfy this functionality though interactions with other molecules — we use computer models to understand and predict how molecules recognize each other. Ultimately, we would like to use this knowledge to understand the underlying causes of disease and to design new functional molecules and drugs.

We contribute to the field by developing computational tools grounded on physico-chemical principles and apply them to understand proteins, peptides, nucleic acids and their interactions.
