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.
  1. association landscapes for protein interaction
  2. evolution theory
