Prof. STEFAN T. AROLD Specializes in integrative structural biology. He is working as Associate Professor in Department of Bioscience, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia.

Research Interest

Professor Arold’s research interests are focused on integrative structural biology based on hybrid approaches. His work involves inferring structure and function of macromolecular assemblies, to enhance computational methods for functional annotation of genes (system-wide or focused), and to design and engineer molecules with desired properties (switches, genetic/epi-genetic regulators, detectors).
