Multiscale Modelling Group

Dr. Birgit Strodel

Multiscale Modelling Group, Forschungszentrum Jülich

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.
