Research Outline      2015-12-30 14:27:30

Currently, we have two major research projects ongoing. The first one concerns the structural elucidation of protein aggregates. We attempt to combine molecular dynamics simulations and solid-state NMR (SSNMR) spectroscopy to study the structures of oligomeric aggregates formed by beta-amyloid peptides, hoping to unravel the underlying aggregation pathway. The second project focuses on the molecular mechanism of biomineralization This interdisciplinary study requires expertise in SSNMR spectroscopy, sol-gel chemistry, biophysics and material science. The motivation is to understand in detail the mineralization process in organisms so that materials with novel structure and properties could be developed.
