Defining Edge Research and Creative Work – Young Investigator Award S. Banu Ozkan

Sat, 2013-04-13

S. Banu Ozkan has developed a significant and defined research vision that explores the sequence-structure-function relationship of proteins, or “protein folding problem,” and the role of protein-protein and protein-peptide interactions in defining functions in a cell. Ozkan has established new modeling approaches to address the problem of protein folding using multi-scale techniques to capture a more accurate picture of protein dynamics. Similar approaches she has developed could substantially affect knowledge of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and chronic pain.  Read more here
