SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS
I always admired the efficiency and flexibility of cells to accomplish the tasks necessary for their survival and proliferation. Therefore I am interested in proteins and their diverse roles, not only as catalysts in metabolism but also as molecular motors, signaling factors and receptors. I would like to increase my knowledge on structure-function relationships because they constitute a key feature in the development of disease treatments and synthetic biology.
