Computer simulation of Biomolecular Systems
The application of the theoretical techniques of statistical thermodynamics and quantum mechanics to the study of organic and biomolecular systems.
Our aim is to rationalise and interpret experimentally observed behaviour at the molecular level, and suggest further lines of experimental inquiry.
This work is of direct relevance to rational drug-design and we collaborate extensively with the pharmaceutical industry.
