Welcome to Vakser Lab

The laboratory is focused on the development of computational methods for structural modeling of protein interactome.

Progress in the description of life processes at the molecular level requires better understanding of protein interactions. Computational studies of structural and physicochemical aspects of these interactions are important for revealing the underlying fundamental principles and for designing better tools to model protein complexes.

Our strategic goal is to structurally model a cell through the development of powerful multiscale modeling techniques, based on fundamental principles of molecular structure and interaction.

We are looking for Postdocs and PhD students, preferably with physics/math background, to work on modeling of protein interactions and whole cell modeling. Letters of interest and CVs can be sent to vakser@ku.edu.
