Research

  • My research concerns protein self-assembly related to neurodegenerative
    diseases with the focus on characterization of protein structure and
    molecular mechanisms of self-assembly. The studies in our lab include a
    broad range of different techniques within biophysics, protein
    biochemistry and biomedicine. My current research focuses on the
    aggregation mechanisms of amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) fibril formation,
    associated to Alzheimer’s disease and inhibition mechanisms by the
    BRICHOS domain, a chaperone-like protein that is potential candidate to be
    implemented in Alzheimer’s disease treatment. Furthermore, another research
    line is the development of new expression and purification protocols for
    aggregation-prone proteins using a spider silk-derived solubility tag, where
    one possible application is the generation of new biomaterials.
