The Zürich group is now shrunken to four people - find more information about group members in the people page.

The current research pursued in Zürich has been designed to extend and complement the structural biology data on prion proteins which we accumulated during the last two decades. In collaboration with Prof. Michele Parrinello, computational methods are used to expand the information on the conformational behavior of cellular prion proteins. In a project with Prof. Adriano Aguzzi, the physiological effects of previously observed variations of the conformational properties among different prion proteins are investigated with the use of transgenic mice.
