Welcome to the Rhee Research GroupEXPLORE THE UNEXPLORED!
The mission of our lab is to provide answers to fundamental questions in physical chemistry with focuses on biological complexes. We use theoretical and computational tools to accomplish this mission. By using theoretical tools, we can of course complement experiments. Ultimately, however, we aim to predict interesting chemical behaviors ahead of experiments, and to design new computational tools that can be adopted for such predictions. We are firstly interested in photochemical pheonomena in protein systems, where lots of quantum chemical and statistical mechanical factors are acting behind the scene. With recent developments in these two fields — quantum chemistry and statistical mechanics — we are now able to understand more and more complicated biological events to the molecular level. Our group is working on developing new methodologies and theoretical tools, and on applying these tools to explaining unresolved experimental findings in complex molecular systems.
