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, as well as cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) refinement techniques.

Our research interfaces computational biophysics with structural biology, chemistry and biochemistry with the goal to understand the biological function and improve applications of proteins and nucleic acids, which are responsible for genome editing and regulation, which are promising   against cancer and genetic diseases. 

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