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.

David Rodríguez Larrea

We explore the behaviour of single-protein molecules as they are forced to translocate through nanometer-size pores inserted in lipid membranes. Measuring the ionic current through the pore, we are able to follow their unfolding and refolding pathways. Such pathways are vectorial, as those ...
