Research includes:

  1. a) The binding of commercial drugs to certain blood plasma proteins, as well as the examination of the specificity of drug-protein interactions in simulated physiological conditions.
  2. b) The study of interactions of newly synthesized compounds with human serum albumin and CT DNA molecule.

The determination of binding constants, binding sites, thermodynamic parameters, and the nature of binding forces between drug/newly synthesized compounds and proteins.
