The main Laurence Lins’s research interest is to decipher the structure/activity relationships of biomolecules (proteins, peptides, natural compounds, pharmacological drugs) in interaction with the membrane, by using in silico biophysical tools (home-designed softwares as well as methods freely available), as well as by biophysical assays using liposomes (fluorescence and infrared spectroscopy notably). The prediction of functional domains based on the primary sequence of proteins (soluble or membrane proteins), as well as peptide conformation prediction (Peplook method) is also one of the expertise fields of the researcher.

A strong network of national and international collaborations with biologists, pharmacologists, plant physiologists and analytical chemists has been developed in this context.
