Dr. Vince Voelz is a relatively recent addition to the Folding@home team. His interests involve studying protein folding in biophysical settings as well as folding in the presence of the ribosome. He is part of the multi-institutional grant from NSF’s Frontiers In Biological Research program. While it’s a bit early to talk about his work with FAH, Vince has been one of the key driving force behind a major new protein folding initiative at Folding@home (more on that later) as well as working with FIBR experimentalists to see what we can do to predict their experiments and build a tighter connection in general.
Below is a recent youtube movie where Vince explains about electrostatics in proteins, a key aspect of protein stability.
