The research in the protein folding laboratory is focused on developing modeling software and methods for use in biology and medicine. High performance computing resources are used to study molecular liquids as a proxy for biomolecules. Quantum chemistry is used to study small molecules and to collect data needed to improve models. Applications focus on 1) RNA structure and dynamics in the context of viral genomes, 2) binding of small molecules to proteins in order to study the effect of pollutant molecules on living organisms and 3) atmospheric chemistry. Further work has been performed recently on carbon sequestration and storage, involving either proteins or ionic liquids, and on antibiotic peptides.
