Multiscale modeling of keratin, collagen, elastin and related human diseases: Perspectives from atomistic to coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eml.2018.01.009 Scleroproteins are an important category of proteins within the human body that adopt filamentous, elongated conformations in contrast with typical globular proteins. These include keratin, collagen, and elastin, which often serve a common mechanical function in structural support of cells and tissues. Genetic mutations alter these proteins, disrupting their functions and causing diseases.

Postdoc in Soft Tissue Biomechanics and Imaging, University of Pittsburgh

The Laboratory of Ocular Biomechanics at the University of Pittsburgh is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral fellow position on multi-scale biomechanics of soft tissues. The project goal is to understand aging and vision. To apply, send TWO representative publications and CV to Ian Sigal, PhD (ian@ocularbiomechanics.com). More details about the Laboratory of Ocular Biomechanics at www.OcularBiomechanics.org. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, so early submission is encouraged.
