Mission Statement

The Computational Biophysics group led by Gianni de Fabritiis, shares interests in the range of physical phenomena produced by the interplay of different scales, for instance between single  and collections of molecules (mesoscale).  We study protein dynamics, kinetics and energetics using mainly molecular dynamics simulations (ACEMD) on graphics processing units (GPUs) and (  In our research, we attempt to solve new scientific problems by developing new methodologies, software and ideas for bridging between the atomistic scale (femtoseconds, nanometers) and the biological molecular scale (micro- to milli-seconds and hundreds of nanometers).
