The Royal Physiographic Society of Lund has decided to award PhD Amanda Eriksson Skog and Postdoc Henrik Vinther Sørensen, Computational Chemistry


Congratulations Amanda Eriksson Skog and Henrik Vinther Sørensen to your awards from The Royal Physiographic Society of Lund. Endowments for the Natural Sciences, Medicine and Technology – Chemistry

Amanda Eriksson Skogs fund will be used to investigate Histatins, Saliva peptides with important functions for our innate immune system. Histatins, a family of saliva peptides that act as a first line of defence of our innate immune system and possess antimicrobial properties. Of specific interest is Histatin 1, Histatin 3, and Histatin 5. The aim is to achieve a molecular understanding of the underlying physics by utilizing the toolbox we have developed for more than a decade for Hst5, combining computer simulations and experiments. Amount: 130 000 SEK.

Henrik Henrik Vinther Sørensen fund will be used to A Structural Investigation of an Intrinsically Disordered Region of Tumour Suppressor Protein p53. Which is a theoretical and experimental investigation into one of the IDRs of p53. Henrik Vinther Sørensenhas together with Marie Skepö and Michael Bakker has already submitted a paper with the title Exploring the Role of Globular Domain Locations on an Intrinsically Disordered Region of p53: A Molecular Dynamics Investigation. Amount: 200 000 SEK
