Research Interests:

Association and aggregation play an important role in development of pharmaceutical peptide formulations. A detailed understanding about solvent dependent changes in the association state is an essential tool. These information are relevant for development of stable storage formulations or predictions of the peptide behavior after patient treatment. To analyze peptide association and peptide interactions we combine several hydrodynamic and spectroscopic methods, e.g. static (SLS) and dynamic (DLS) light scattering, circular dichroism spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy.
