Peptide Therapeutics

Head: prof. RNDr. Robert Vácha, PhD.

Research Topics

We focus on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying vital biological processes. In particular, we are interested in processes involving biological membranes, proteins, and their interactions. We aim to utilize the obtained understanding to design new peptides/proteins or modify the existing ones that could be useful in medical or biotechnological applications. Results from our computer simulations, which employ advanced sampling techniques, are verified through a range of in vitro experiments. These include fluorescence microscopy, quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and various biochemical assays.
