DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP

We develop and use computational tools for studies of 3D structure of biomolecules and their dynamics. Our interests embrace broad aspects of computational biology, from molecular simulations to data analysis. Read more at the laboratory website: http://lcbio.pl/

THE LEADER OF THE GROUP

E-mail: sekmi@chem.uw.edu.pl

Sebastian Kmiecik received his doctorate in 2007 at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Warsaw. In 2007-2010, he worked in Selvita, a biotechnology company, where he directed R&D projects that included software development and drug design support services. From 2010, he worked on new methods of multiscale modeling of proteins at the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Warsaw. In 2015, Sebastian Kmiecik received a D.Sc. degree, and in 2016 the award of the Minister of Science and Higher Education for his scientific achievements of the first degree.
