Abstract Our research interests are to (i) unravel the underlying physico–chemical principles governing biological processes, (ii) develop new methods, as required, along the way and (iii) use the above principles and methods to design molecules with potential therapeutic utility. This talk will highlight our key accomplishments in these three areas. 1.Metal Binding Affinity and Selectivity in Metalloproteins: Insights from Computational Studies.
