Yasmin Binti Shamsudin

Principal Investigator

Yasmin got her MSc. Chemical Engineering and PhD in Molecular Biotechnology  from Uppsala University, Sweden. She then went to Stanford University, USA, as a Wallenberg postdoctoral research fellow before returning to Uppsala University as faculty.

Yasmin’s research focuses on understanding the dynamics of proteins and the molecular mechanisms of binding, inhibition and catalysis of small molecules in enzymes. She is also interested in protein and enzyme engineering and engages in computational methods development.

Our Projects

Antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance kills millions of people every year. We use computational methods and models to understand how to design drugs that can be used both today and in the future.

Methods development

Electric fields contribute to catalysis. We develop computational methods to predict fields in proteins and enzymes to design both drugs and novel enzymes with specified functions.
