Welcome to the Palermo Lab!

We are a Computational Biophysics Group at the University of California Riverside, with expertise in molecular dynamics and multiscale modeling, ab-initio and quantum mechanical methods, and in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) refinement techniques.

Our research focuses on large-scale simulations of emerging genome editing technologies and CRISPR systems. Our lab also works at developing cryo-EM refinement methods based on high-level quantum mechanical simulations and free energy methods. 


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