Mark BerjanskiiResearch Associate

My research interests include protein structure determination, protein-protein interactions, protein misfolding, protein dynamics and its role in protein function and protein-related diseases. Between 1996 and 2004, I worked as a member of several research teams that studied Hsp70-Hsp40 chaperone system. Since 2005, our primary target has been prion proteins that, when misfolded, cause Mad Cow Disease in cattle and similar Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in humans. Since 2004, I have been involved in developing several programs for analysis of protein structure and dynamics, such as Random Coil Index, Preditor, GeNMR, CS23D, PROSESS, and Resolution-by-proxy.
