Reedijk Symposium 2019: Molecular simulations and theory of complex systems
- Friday 25 October 2019
2333 CC Leiden
Thanks to modern computational resources, the dynamics, behavior and organization of nano materials can be realistically simulated and thus studied by iteratively solving newtons equations of motion. Our main goals are (i) to elucidate the reaction mechanisms and rates of protein-mediated biological processes (drug development) via state-of-the-art statistical mechanics based methods, and (ii) to explore the potential applications of biomaterials within material science. A few striking examples which underscore the versatility of these techniques in recent research will be illustrated.
