Areas of Interest

We are interested in understanding how the 3D structure and dynamics of proteins and RNAs drive their biological function. Our lab combines chemistry, biophysics and biology to build a foundation of basic knowledge for understanding the remarkable chemistries catalyzed by nature’s best enzymes, re-designing the catalytic properties of enzymes, uncovering the roles of biomacromolecules in disease, and discovering new classes of therapeutic targets. The Koutmos Lab is a diverse community of scientific peers that values differences as an asset to create a highly interdisciplinary environment for scientific discovery.
