12th International Conference on STRUCTURAL AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
Wolfgang B Fischer
National Yang-Ming University, Taiwan
Wolfgang Fischer is a Professor at the Institute of Biophotonics, School of Biomedical Science and Engineering, National Yang-Ming University, Taiwan. He has obtained his PhD in Chemistry at Heidelberg University, Germany, working in the field of vibrational spectroscopy in 1991. He has worked for years in USA like in Boston University as Postdoctoral Fellow working on bacteriorhodopsin using vibrational spectroscopy; Germany in Analytical Chemistry, working on ion channels as potential biosensors; Oxford University as EU Marie Curie Research Fellow and later as Lecturer, working on viral ion channels using bilayer recordings and molecular dynamics simulations and later moved to Taiwan. His field of research is on biophysical aspects describing dynamics and energetic of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) of membrane proteins. The focus is on the development of computational platform technologies to support structural modeling for drug discovery and design as well as for materials sciences.
Abstract : Structural modeling of membrane proteins from viruses
