Im, Wonpil

/ School of Computational Sciences

Biophysics

Research in Wonpil Im's lab is focused on the applications of theoretical/computational methods to chemical and physical problems in biology and material sciences. In particular, he is interested in modeling and simulations of biological membranes and associated proteins, glycoconjugates, and protein-ligand (drug) interactions.

In addition, his lab has been developing CHARMM-GUI and GlycanStructure.ORG for the biomolecular modeling and simulation community.
