Chris Oostenbrink

Professor, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna



Professor Chris Oostenbrink has two master degrees in chemistry and medicinal chemistry from Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Then he accomplish his PhD studies in computational chemistry at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, ETH, Zurich, supervised by Prof. W.F. van Gunsteren. He holds the Vienna Science Chair for Molecular Modeling and Simulation. His research interests include: Computational methods to describe the structure, function and dynamics of biomolecular systems. From the development of accurate force fields to the efficient calculation of binding free energies of a series of compounds to a common macromolecular target. Method development and practical applications to rationalize and predict experiments. Enhanced sampling techniques to address conformational changes and protein folding problems. Effect of protein flexibility on function and behaviour.
