Om Michal Maj


Research in the Maj group focuses on studying the structure and aggregation kinetics of amyloid intermediates using laser spectroscopy and high-resolution imaging techniques. Many diseases are caused by aggregation of misfolded proteins into amyloid fibrils. We take advantage of the rapid acquisition of femtosecond two-dimensional infrared (2D-IR) spectroscopy to elucidate mechanisms of such protein self-assembly. To increase the structural specificity of 2D-IR, we develop new molecular probes that can be used as IR-active sensors of structure and dynamics of proteins.
