BIOPHYSICS CONGRESS 2015

The R&D programs of BIOFISIKA are grouped in two main Research Lines and five Research Sublines. This rational combination of independent group abilities and skills in supplementary fields contributes to reduce scientific dispersion and undertake more ambitious and complex research projects. The distribution of the research groups in the different Research Lines respond to the will of BIOFISIKA to create a unique Research and Training program able to exploit all the singularities present in the Center, fostering the complementarities and synergies of the different groups.

Mechanisms for Virus-Induced Membrane Fusion

José Luis Nieva

Our objective is to determine the molecular mechanism by which membrane glycoproteins of some viruses (HIV, Ebola) induce the fusion of the cell and viral membranes. Prediction tools have been developed to detect the domains that are inserted into the target membrane. Specifically, we seek to ...
