Laboratorij za kemiju u modelnim biološkim sustavima
The goals of The Laboratory is to understand these processes in small, model systems aiming to transfer this knowledge in large, biological systems which cannot be explored at this level of details.
In the Laboratory we are using a combination of different computational techniques (quantum-chemical calculations, molecular dynamics simulations, combined QM/MM methods) and experimental techniques (IR, NMR and UV spectroscopy, fluorimetry) in exploring different model systems.
The force of the Laboratory is in synergy of computational and experimental techniques, with the aim of full understanding of biologically relevant processes. One of the goals of the Laboratory is also to develop improved model biological membranes with tunable reactivity of peptides/proteins or lipids with different reactive species, which is not possible with available model biological membranes where control of reactivity is hardly attainable.
