Wonpil Im, Ph.D.

Research in our group is focused on the applications of theoretical/computational methods to chemical and physical problems in biology and material science.

Specific research interests are:

  • Protein/peptide interactions with/in biological membranes
  • Transmembrane-induced signaling and regulation
  • NMR structure calculation & refinement
  • Modeling and simulation of glycoconjugates (GlycanStructure.ORG)
  • Bacterial outer membranes and interactions with proteins
  • Protein-ligand and protein-protein interactions (G-LoSA)

In addition, we are involved in developing the biomolecular simulation program CHARMM and its user interface CHARMM-GUI as well as ST-analyzer, a general graphical user interface toolset for simulation trajectory analysis.
