Beschreibung: The research of the institute is on the structure and formation of amyloid fibrils and oligomers in disease. Amyloid oligomers from Aβ peptide are drivers of brain damage in Alzheimer’s disease and thus major health burdens and cost factors in aging Western societies. Obtaining more detailed structural data will important for improving our basic research understanding of the mechanism of fibril formation. In the long run, our work could form the basis of new diagnostic procedures or targeted intervention strategies.
Methoden: Our new co-worker will further strengthen the research and teaching of our institute, carrying out a project that will use the Nobel Prize-winning method cryo electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to provide high resolution structural information about amyloid oligomers. Cryo-EM is an increasingly powerful tool to analyze the macromolecular structure of large biomolecules and will be the core technique to be applied here. The method involves a good deal of computational work, and the project additionally involves different methods of biochemical sample preparation and characterization.
