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.

Structural Glycobiology

Structural Glycobiology

Glycans are not only one of the major components of the cell but also are essential molecules that modulate a variety of important biological processes in all living organisms. The structural diversity od glycans is particularly relevant in molecular recognition events including cell-cell, ...

X-Ray Crystallography of Membrane Proteins

X-Ray Crystallography of Membrane Proteins

This research program has two main and complementary focuses: structure-function of integral membrane proteins and structure-based drug discovery & design. The projects developed in this program are focused on determining the crystal structure of membrane proteins and, the development ...

Virus Research and Development

Diego M. A. Guérin

Learning about the structure of macromolecules of biological interest (enzymes, receptors, large molecular aggregates such as viruses) enables the mechanisms of the biochemical functions they perform to be interpreted. Protein crystallography, currently the most advanced and powerful technique ...
