Description of Research Expertise

The Saven group uses theory and computation to study biomolecules, polymers, and condensed phase systems. A current thrust of the group involves developing computational tools for understanding and designing new molecular systems, with an emphasis on proteins. The group works closely with experimental groups at Penn and at other universities; some group members are involved in joint theoretical/experimental projects. Recent projects involve the design of soluble and membrane bound proteins, understanding sequence variability, biomolecular materials, and biomolecular simulation.
