Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Institute for Biophysical Dynamics, The University of Chicago
The Roux Lab is focused on using theoretical techniques such as classical molecular dynamics and free energy methodologies to understand the function of biological systems at the atomic and molecular level. Roux is also one of the main developers of the CHARMM program and CHARMM potential function (which is also used by NAMD developed by the Schulten group). Roux is also leading the development in biomolecular simulations in the Bioscience Division at Argonne National Laboratory, with access to the computational resources of the Office of Science in the Department of Energy. A strong link between computations and experiments is always emphasized in his research, which has led to collaborations with numerous outstanding experimental Labs.
