Researcher interests: The laboratory of molecular modeling and drug design develops algorithms and computer techniques and employs them, as well as other computational methods, for research in structural biology, modeling, and drug design. A central activity in the laboratory is the development of novel optimization methods for solving the complex combinatorial problems that are an integral part of structural biology and drug design. A large scope of issues has already been addressed by our core technology, called “Iterative Stochastic Elimination” (ISE) which was used to search for optimal solutions to the construction of conformational ensembles, multiple loops in proteins, protein-ligand docking, protein design, cheminformatics and others.
