RESEARCH ACTIVITY
Study of the structure-activity-dynamics relationships of various enzymes and proteins In particular:
• Study of protein-ligands and protein-DNA interactions
• Study of protein systems involved in various diseases (cancer, galactosemia)
• Study of interactions between ligands with pharmacological activity and proteins
