Reveal dynamic behaviors of aromatic clusters at high temperatures by combining experiments and simulations
Yuki Hishikawa (3rd year doctoral student, Ueno Laboratory, School of Life Science and Technology) won the BSJ Student Presentation Award 2022 for his poster presentation at the 60th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society of Japan held in Hakodate from Wednesday, September 28 to Friday, September 30, 2022.
Thermodynamic and Molecular Dynamic Analysis of Aromatic Interaction Networks in Protein Cages
It is a great honor to receive the Student Presentation Award 2022 from the Biophysical Society of Japan. At the presentation, I received incisive questions and comments that got to the core of the matter from researchers in various fileds such as calorimetry, statistical mechanics, molecular simulations, theoretical calculations, and protein engineering. I am glad that I was able to have deep physicochemical discussions with many experts from both experimental and theoretial perspectives. I sincerely thank Professor Takafumi Ueno, Assistant Professor Satoshi Abe, and Specially Appointed Assistant Professor Basudev Maity for guiding me through my research project. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Professor Kouhei Tsumoto and Project Associate Professor Satoru Nagatoishi at The University of Tokyo for their support of the calorimetric measurements; and Assistant Professor Takashi Yoshidome at Tohoku University for the caclulations of hydration entropy. I also thank the members of my laboratory for their support of my research.
