Research Group: Protein Design

The primary research interests of Gustav Oberdorfer’s research group revolve around the computational design of novel proteins, which is a promising tool to create superior biological materials with tailor-made properties, new pharmaceuticals or complex fine chemicals. This is a multi-facetted effort that combines computational biology, structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics approaches. Currently the group is focusing on designing and characterizing protein structures for small molecule binding and catalysis as well as on designing and characterizing monomeric as well as oligomeric protein with central cavities or pores for passive transport.
