Knowledge of proteins and other biological macromolecules 3D structures is essential to understand how they work.

Key research questions:

  • What are the mechanisms that govern passage of information inside a cell? Can we identify strategies to mimic or regulate them?
  • How do proteins recognise different cellular targets, and how is this recognition regulated?
  • …ultimately, why does cancer form? What went wrong?
