We are a research group at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology.

We investigate the molecular basis of life with focus on the structure, function and evolution of proteins and their regulation by small molecules and macromolecules using a combination of experimental and computational methods.


COOPERATE – Creating cooperative peptidases by protein engineering.

Molecular mechanisms of allosteric regulation and oligomerization in papain-like cysteine peptidases.

Identification and characterization of novel protein/small molecule interactions with focus on the discovery of novel antibiotics and anti-cancer drugs.
