Research at CMPS covers the molecular properties, structure, function, and interactions of proteins and other biomolecules.

CMPS brings together scientists in biochemistry, molecular biophysics, structural biology, physical and theoretical chemistry. We uncover molecular principles and mechanisms while exploring structure, dynamics and function of key proteins in a highly integrated approach. Development of new powerful experimental and theoretical tools plays a key role.

CMPS includes two divisions at Lund University: Biochemistry and Structural Biology and Biophysical Chemistry. Fifteen research groups are active at CMPS!

Fluid-like virus DNA facilitates viral infection!
CMPS Associate Professor Alex Evilevitch and colegues found that tightly packaged DNA in the viral capsid of a bacterial virus undergoes a solid-to-fluid–like structural transition that facilitates infection close to
37 °C. Read more!
