Research focus

Research in Associate Professor Yu’s group is focused on developing and applying theoretical and computational tools to understand the structure-dynamics-function relationship in complex (bio)molecular. Complementary to experimental investigations, such studies can gain new insights at the atomic level into the underlying mechanism and provide necessary knowledge for molecular engineering and discovery of novel therapeutics.
