Medicine and health

At the molecular scale, quantum mechanical calculations are used to model drug action and other detailed molecular-level biological processes.

Structural and transport properties, such as protein structure and transport through biological membranes are carried out using molecular mechanics and molecular dynamics simulations. For example:

Bio-physical problems, including molecular self-assembly, cell mobility tracking and rheology in bacterial bio-films and various cardiac processes, are also investigated:

Informatics and statistical analysis are applied to cell growth and various aspects of health:
