Protein Biophysics Group

Institute of High Pressure Physics
Polish Academy of Sciences

Our research is focused on biological soft matter: its dynamics, conformational transitions, and processes leading to the hierarchical self-assembly of biopolymers and biomembranes. We are particularly interested in:

- mechanisms of protein aggregation,

- borderlines between determinism and randomness in conformational transitions,

- thermodynamics of protein folding with particular emphasis on high pressure effects,

- applications of the biological self-organization in nanotechnology.
