Welcome to the Palermo Lab!

We are a Computational Biophysics Group at the University of California Riverside, with expertise in a variety of computational methods, including molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, multiscale modeling, ab-initio MD and quantum mechanics, with an open eye on the development and application of novel cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) refinement techniques.

Our research interfaces computational biophysics with structural biology, chemistry and biochemistry with the goal to unravel the function and improve applications of key biological systems, guiding experimental research toward the engineering of artificial enzymes and novel potential drugs with therapeutic action against cancer and genetic diseases. 

Our lab has a strong commitment toward increasing diversity and welcomes scientist with different background and origin.
