Dynamics of Polypeptides from Measurement of Intramolecular Contact Formation

Primary Investigators: Lisa Lapidus
Funding Agency: Burroughs Welcome Fund
Funding Amount: $399,000 with approximately $80,000 matching hardware support from iCER

Using the technique the PI developed to measure the rate of contact formation of non-local residues in an unstructured polypeptide, the PI plans to study the fundamental polymer dynamics of peptides and proteins.
