The research carried out at the Laboratory is interdisciplinary - it is defined at the interface of physics, chemistry, biology and bioinformatics - and it uses both experimental and theoretical methods. The research belongs to the main trends of fundamental studies of modern biophysics and molecular biology and yet it also aims at generating applications.

The topics studied at the Laboratory deal with bionanotechnology, molecular aspects of life processes in a cell, such as protein biosynthesis and mechanical manipulation of biomolecules and virus capsids. Examples of these topics are outlined below.

Research on nanoparticles for use in cancer diagnostics and therapy

Physical bases of molecular interactions

Membrane fusion induced by viral proteins

Theoretical problems in biophysics

Collaborations and larger research projects
