    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Many biological processes involve aggregation of proteins into insoluble aggregates, "fibrils". Their properties are studied, for example, to find ways how to prevent neurodegenerative diseases. In our laboratory we use optical spectroscopic, computational and other methods to understand basic principles of fibril formation and structure. Particular aim of the thesis is to develop measurement and interpretation procedures for the modern spectroscopy of Raman optical activity, the topic involves spectroscopic experiments as well as computational modeling.

How to apply
