Single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy of heterogeneous binding and aggregation of disordered proteins

Dr. Hoi Sung Chung (National Institutes of Health)

Acting Section Chief, Single-Molecule Biophysics Section, Laboratory of Chemical Physics, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

The Single-Molecule Biophysics Section studies protein conformational dynamics using single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy. Dr. Chung’s work involves the characterization of conformational diversity associated with molecular processes using both thermodynamics and kinetic approaches.

Dr. Gonzalo Prat-Gay (Fundación Instituto Leloir, Argentina)

Head of laboratory of protein structure-function and engineering

The Prat-Gay lab combines biochemistry, biophysics to understand the role of disordered proteins in the context of viral function and evolution
