Welcome to the research lab of Professor Ren at the Department of Biomedical EngineeringCockrell School of Engineeringand University of Texas at Austin.

Our research is focused on understanding and engineering biomolecular systems for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications using computational modeling. We are interested in understanding the fundamental processes in chemistry and biology such as molecular recognition and biomolecular structure-function relationship. We are developing methods to simulate and predict molecular behavior, and to engineer novel molecules from small-molecule drugs tonanomaterials.
