In this lab we try to understand viruses by studying their proteins using biochemistry and biophysical techniques. We focus in endemic viruses regarding their maturation process and manifestation in the blood of patients. We study the mechanisms and energetics of protein structure, folding and binding with an eye into the introduction of novel antiviral drugs and better diagnostics.
