Research Interest

Dr. Enrique García Hernández focused on Molecular basis of the function of proteins. Protein folding and the formation of complexes with other biomolecules (protein, lipid, carbohydrate, nucleotide) are studied through calorimetric (DSC, ITC), spectroscopic (DC, DLS fluorescence), and computational techniques. By means of the energetic-structural models that we have obtained, he implement proteins engineering through the rational modification of the active site.
