Professor Alexander S. Mikhailov is an overseas Computational Science group of the WPI NanoLSI and a professor at the Department of Physical Chemistry at the Fritz Haber Institute, Berlin. Here, he describes his research on computational molecular biophysics as a powerful approach for simulating the dynamics of complex biological structures ranging from single molecules to the cell.
The Kanazawa University NanoLSI Podcast offers updates of the latest news and research at the WPI-NanoLSI Kanazawa University. The Nano Life Science Institute (NanoLSI) at Kanazawa University was established in 2017 as part of the World Premier International (WPI) Research Center Initiative of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
Researchers at the NanoLSI are combining their cutting-edge expertise in scanning probe microscopy to establish ‘nano-endoscopic techniques’ to directly image, analyze, and manipulate biomolecules for insights into mechanisms governing life phenomena such as diseases.
