Personalized Structural Biology


Vanderbilt University’s  Program in Personalized Structural Biology / Precision Medicine is a trans-institutional initiative to apply computational techniques in structural biology to answer mechanistic questions directly impacting the care of individual patients.

Clinicians at Vanderbilt University Medical Center can contact our investigators with questions about customizing the treatment of patients by using genomic information to build 3D structural models of disease-involved proteins. See more detail here.
