Welcome to the Carme Rovira group web site

Our research is focused on the study of enzymatic reactions and ligand-protein interactions at atomic and electronic detail, using computer simulation. Currently, we are interested in:

  • Mechanisms of biosynthesis and degradation of carbohydrates

  • Activity-based probes for carbohydrate-active enzymes

  • Influence of sugar ring puckering in glycosidase catalysis

  • Catalytic mechanisms of metalloproteins

We participate in two EU H2020 projects:

  • MSCA IT Network Sweet Crosstalk. "Training interdisciplinary glycoscientists to get a molecular-level grip on glycocodes at the human mucosa-microbiota interface"

  • ERC Synergy Grant 951231 CARBOCENTRE. "Activity-Based Profiling of Glycoprocessing Enzymes for Human Health and a Sustainable Society"
