Stefan T. Arold
Professor, Bioscience<br/>Associate Dean, Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering Division
Professor Arold’s research interests are focused on integrative structural biology based on hybrid approaches. His work involves inferring structure and function of macromolecular assemblies, to enhance computational methods for functional annotation of genes (system-wide or focused), and to design and engineer molecules with desired properties (switches, genetic/epi-genetic regulators, detectors).
Desired Project Deliverables
Exact deliverables depend on the type of work (experimental and / or computational). Experimental deliverables could be, for example, the expression and detection of a set of target proteins in microfluidic droplets or the automation of a cloning or protein expression experiment on a liquid handling robot. Software development would build on existing Python libraries to streamline biodesign workflows in the lab (e.g. multi-domain protein design).
