Welcome to the LPDI! Our group is driven by the passion of expanding nature’s repertoire by designing novel functional proteins to be used for practical purposes such as therapeutics, vaccines, biosensors and others.

The broad vision for our research is to entail several layers of characterization on our newly designed proteins: in silico, in vitro and if applicable in vivo. An example of such workflow for vaccine design purposes is represented bellow.


To create novel functional proteins our group utilizes both computational and experimental strategies.
