Antibodies in Solution: a LINXS – NIST Webinar Series: “Protein internal dynamics and their relationship with the protein stability” with Yun Liu

Significant progress over the past several decades has deepened the understanding of how biomolecules function. The views have evolved to appreciate that biomolecules adopt diverse pools of conformations linked by dynamic equilibria. With this emerging paradigm, structure encodes dynamics, and dynamics determine function. However, compared with the large body of works to relate structures to the functions of biomolecules, the understanding of the relationship between intrinsic dynamics and functions is still at an early stage.

Dr. Yun Liu is currently a physicist at NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) and an affiliated professor at Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at University of Delaware. His research interests cover colloidal science, biophysics, pharmaceutical materials, and gas adsorption and desorption in porous materials with over 170 publications.
