Multiscale Modelling Group
In our group we develop multiscale methods that bridge from the atomistic (microscopic) to a coarser (mesocopic) level for the description of biomolecules. Such methods enable us to reach mesoscopic time- and length scales in our simulations investigating biomolecular self-assembly. Here, our focus is on protein aggregation and the protein-protein interactions driving this process. Within the variety of protein aggregation processes we currently concentrate on amyloid aggregation, which plays a major role in amyloid diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease.
- The Alzheimer's Aβ peptide interacting with lipid membranes.
- β-sheet breakers for the therapy of Alzheimer's disease.
- Development of solvent and lipid models for biomolecular simulations.
- Coarse-grained simulations of protein aggregation.
- Structure prediction for protein-protein complexes.
