We study protein stability using all kind of wet and computational approaches. We try to understand the physics involved and to develop quantitative tools for the rational design of protein stability. We practise target-oriented drug discovery combining high through put screening of chemical libraries, structural determination of ligand-target complexes, medicinal chemistry and computational tools to increase complex affinity. We are working of the prediction of phenotypes for proteins carrying single-nucleotide variations.
