Projects 13733-13737,14047,14048

Cause: unspecified

These projects are simulations of designed constrained alpha-helical peptides.  This collaboration with Dr. Feng Gai's group at University of Pennsylvania seeks to understand in detail the molecular mechanisms underlying helical nucleation and folding kinetics.

List of Contributors

This project is managed by Prof. Vincent Voelz at Temple University.

Dr. Voelz's research focuses on using new simulation methods to unravel the mysteries of how proteins self-assemble into their functional folds, and to design folding and binding properties of proteins and peptide mimetics from first principles. The Voelz Lab participates in the Folding@home project, hosting two servers at Temple University. Dr. Voelz was formerly a postdoctoral scholar in the Vijay Pande lab at Stanford University.
