Biostructural Research

We determine three-dimensional structures of human biological macro-molecules that are potential targets for new drugs, and study the relationship between their structure and function.

Our research forms the basis for design of new drug molecules that are uniquely adapted to the three-dimensional structure of individual receptors, enzymes, transport molecules and other proteins implicated in diseases.

Our research contributes to the fundamental scientific understanding of biological processes at the atomic level. We also contribute with our expertise and facilities to a number of Danish and international research partnerships.

The Section for Biostructural Research operates as one large research group. Our integration of methods and expertise creates critical mass and helps us stay internationally competitive. We focus on seven core projects.
