Project Title: Markov state models for peptide aggregation: applications to beta-amyloid and polyglutamine peptides.

Project Purpose: Understanding the complex aggregation process of amyloid-beta and polyglutamine peptides by molecular dynamic simulations and Markov state models. Where amyloid-beta and polyglutamine peptides have an important functional role and it is an implication in a wide variety of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Huntington’s disease (HD).
