Research

     Our group focuses on the investigation of degenerative and infectious diseases. Our present interest is focused in the following subject: 
   - Diabetes
   - Hemostasis

   In our work, we make an integrative, routine use of advanced approaches in biological and medicinal chemistry combined to structural and molecular biology strategies, such as:

    - protein crystallography;
    - small-angle x-ray scattering;
    - molecular dynamics simulation;
    - modern spectroscopy: fluorescence, FTIR, CD;
    - quantitative protein thermodynamics, binding and linkage;
    - enzyme and folding kinetics;
    - nanobiotechnology;
    - high hidrostatic pressure, kosmotropic and chaotropic system disturbance;
    - other biophysical methods: ITC, DSC, DLS, AFM, EM, NMR, MS, among others.
