Kong studies the design of coassembling β-sheet peptide nanofibers for next-generation functional biomaterials.
B.S., 2013, Biological Chemistry, Peking University
Yuan’s research is about understanding peptide structures in amyloid or aggregates using solid-state NMR. He hopes to characterize more disease-related peptide structures on the way to pursuing his Ph.D. degree. Thanks to some inspiration from Fitz, the structures proposed by Yuan sometimes look nice.
B.S., 2019, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
Alicia is currently investigating ways to incorporate NMR experimental knowledge into the computational design of novel peptide assemblies.
B.S., 2018, Chemistry, University of Connecticut
Emily spends her time in both the Lieberman lab and Paravastu lab working on characterizing the nanofibers formed from the C-terminus olfactomedin (OLF) domain of myocilin implicated in glaucoma.
Annabelle is a rising fourth year Chemical and Biomolecular engineering major on the Biotech track. She has been working in the Paravastu Lab for two and a half years, focusing on molecular modeling.
