Welcome to the Chen Research Group!
We use computer modeling as a primary tool to understand how
biomolecules perform their biological functions, via stable
3D structures, or, equally important, lack of stable structures.
Current focus areas:
- Implicit solvent and intrinsically disordered proteins
- Coarse-grained models and coupled peptide folding, assembly
and membrane insertion
- Modeling and design of novel channel-forming peptides
We constantly look for bright undergraduate and graduate
students. Students expect to receive training and pursue research in
computational biochemistry and biophysics, but will also have
opportunities to work in experimental labs. General background and
interest in biochemistry, biophysics, and/or computer programming is
necessary. We will consider strong candidates for
