The Laboratoire de Biophysique Moléculaire aux Interfaces (LBMI) is part of the “Chimie des agrobiosystèmes” axis in the AGROBIOCHEM Department of Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech and of the biophysics platform. The unit is a research laboratory devoted to molecular biophysics and computer assisted modelling. Our research activities are mainly focused on the study of the interaction between biomolecules (from proteins to small organic molecules) with the membrane by complementary biophysical tools to understand their structure/activity relationships.
