Research Interests

The Maibaum group focuses on the interaction of the cell membrane with other cellular components. In particular, we are interested in the physical principles that govern the aggregation of membrane-associated proteins and peptides, and the changes such growing aggregates can induce in the cell membrane. Using computer simulations and the theoretical framework of statistical mechanics, we investigate both structural and dynamical properties of membrane-protein systems that perform important biological functions.
