I work in the Institute of Medical Immunology at Charité Medical School. I've joined because Hopefully I can find some people to share information about my phd-topics (coiled-coils and SPOT-synthesis) and add some related methodical and input value.

Research interests

  1. Coiled-Coil interaction, stoichometry and peptide design (We use biochemical high-throughput(SPOT- and Peptide-Synthesis) methods, biophysics (ITC, AUZ, Biacore) and informatics (SVM) to define the rules of association on the amino-acid level.)
  2. association landscapes for coiled-coil protein interaction
  3. evolution theory
