Welcome to the Palermo Lab!

Our Computational Biophysics Group uses computer simulations to study new genome editing systems that are transforming life sciences. We are interested in CRISPR-Cas9 and other large macromolecular machines acting on genes.

Our lab bridges the scales from quantum mechanical approaches to enhanced simulations and cryo-EM processing methods to push the boundaries of molecular simulations and tackle the future most exciting problems in biophysics. 

We have a strong commitment toward increasing diversity and we welcome students with different backgrounds and origins. Visit our outreaching website to know more.

Join the lab if you are passionate about Biophysics!
