Main research interests

  • Functional and structural characterisation of different proteins, using the powerful information provided by Structural Biology methods. The atomic level information obtained allows drawing conclusions related to macromolecular interactions.
  • Study of the phenomena behind protein crystallization and new methods to improve it.
