Development of multiscale methods that bridge from the atomistic (microscopic) to a coarser (mesocopic) level for the description of biomolecules. Simulations investigating biomolecular self-assembly in proteins. Investigation of the protein-protein interactions driving protein aggregation. Specific projects are: Alzheimer's Aβ peptide interacting with lipid bilayers, D-peptides for the therapy of Alzheimer's disease, coarse-grained simulations of amyloid aggregation, development of a protein-protein docking program.
