Overview of Research

Proteins are biological “machines.” Proteins must “fold” to carry out these functions as machines. However, the process of protein folding remains unclear in many ways. We study the mechanisms of protein folding and the structures of proteins. Our goal is to be able to design the three-dimensional structure of protein.
