Tanja Kortemme, PhD

Professor

My research seeks to invent approaches to engineer new biological functions at multiple scales, ranging from atomic details to macromolecular machines to cellular processes. By building new functions through a combination of computational design and experimental engineering, I also hope to learn...

Patricia Babbitt, PhD

Professor

My work in computational biology is aimed at learning how nature has evolved the enzyme reactions necessary for life. I use that knowledge to guide enzyme engineering in the lab, leading to the discovery of new reactions and the improvement of function prediction.
