Project: Simulation of transmembrane transport

Project: Simulation of transmembrane transport

A central process in maintaining life is the transport of ions or small molecules such as nutrients across the cell membrane by secondary active transporter proteins. In this project you will use molecular dynamics (MD) computer simulations to study some of the fundamental principles by which transporters act as molecular machines that transduce energy through macromolecular conformational changes. In particular, you will attempt to solve a molecular puzzle : how can a large transported molecule fit through a transporter protein that according to experimental structural data appears too narrow?

Long Liang

Long Liang

Long Liang majored in Biology in his undergraduate study, and shifted to Physics for his PhD study. He hopes to combine his background in Biology and Physics to understand life in terms of the more fundamental Physical laws. In his rotation project he worked on constructing a validated model of a human neurotransmitter transporter. Long is now part of the Complex Materials Group and works on his PhD under Professor Yang Jiao.
