Center for Biomolecular Structure Lecture Series

"Responsive Protein Engineered Biomaterials"

Presented by Jin Kim Montclare, NYU

Wednesday, May 17, 2023, 1:30 pm — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Inspired by nature's biopolymers, we engineer artificial protein materials with entirely new properties and function. We employ synthetic and chemical biology to construct our materials and endow them with stimuli-responsiveness. In particular, we have fabricated protein-derived nanomaterials: coiled-coil fibers, helix-elastin block polymers, and supercharged coiled-coil•lipid complexes (or lipoproteoplexes). We investigate the fundamental self-assembly and molecular recognition capabilities of these systems. More importantly, we are able to harness these structure as well as others to interface with small molecule therapeutics, genes, and cells.
