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

Our research interfaces computational biophysics with structural biology,  with the goal to understand the biological function and improve applications of proteins and nucleic acids involved in 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.
