A key theme of Juan’s research is to explore fundamental cell processes across multiple scales. Juan’s primary technique is molecular dynamics (MD). During the past three decades, MD simulations have emerged as a “computational microscope”, which has provided a unique framework for the study of the phenomena of cell biology in atomic (or near-atomic) detail. Remarkably, due to the the ambitious nature of my research, Juan has developed novel MD approaches for computation, data analysis, and interface to experiments. In addition, the synergistic interplay between his computational work and state-of-the-art experimental work performed by experimental collaborators, has resulted in a robust framework for elucidating accurately and quantitatively the physical mechanisms of biomolecular function.
