Welcome to the webpage of the Molecular Biophysics group at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

The research activity in the group is focused on the development, the fundamental biophysical characterization and the applications of artificial photoreceptors. We investigate how photosensitizers conjugated to protein models can transform them into novel photoreceptor with non-native structural and functional properties

We also study the application of the protein/dye conjugates as vehicles to deliver the photosensitizers for biomedical applications.
