Paulo Martel is a teacher of Bioinformatics, Structural Biochemistry and Enzimology at the
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Sciences and Technology.
He is a theoretical biochemist who work sin computer modelling and simulation of biomolecules,
with an emphasis in the study of electrostatic effects on protein structure and function
and the development of new methods for macromolecular electrostatic calculations.
He is also the scientific coordinator of a research unit at the University of Algarve,
the Center for Structural and Molecular
