Prof. Dr. Birgit Strodel


What we do

In the Strodel group we work on the development of biomolecular simulation methods and their application to various problems from the fields of biophysics and biochemistry. In particular, we focus on the following topics: protein aggregation in Alzheimer’s disease, protein-lipid interactions, protein-protein docking, computational enzyme design, and the calculation of experimental observables from biomolecular simulations.
