Research projects

The research in our laboratory deals with the analysis of structure, activity and inhibition of medicinally relevant proteases and other enzymes as pharmaceutical targets. We are focused on the three major topics: The projects are different yet complementary and enable sharing of resources, instrumentation and expertise. These broadly based biological projects provide suitable topics for diploma- and PhD- thesis for the students of biochemistry and biology at the Charles University who represent the bulk of the lab manpower.
