Koutmos Lab

RNA  |  enzymology  structural biology  |  biocatalysis

We are interested in understanding how the 3D structure and dynamics of proteins and RNAs drive their biological function. Our lab combines chemistry, biophysics and biology to build a foundation of basic knowledge for understanding the remarkable chemistries catalyzed by nature’s best enzymes, re-designing the catalytic properties of enzymes, uncovering the roles of biomacromolecules in disease, and discovering new classes of therapeutic targets. The Koutmos Lab is a diverse community of scientific peers that that values differences as an asset to create a highly interdisciplinary environment for scientific discovery. Please contact Prof. Koutmos ( to learn more.
