Welcome Chris!

7. June 2021

A warm welcome to Christoph who has recently joined the MBM group.

Here are a few words from Christoph about himself:

Hi, I am Chris with a biochemistry and synthetic biology background, hoping to add molecular dynamics simulations to the list soon. During my master’s thesis in the MBM group, I am investigating collagen crosslinks in more detail to then extend the KIMMDY scheme to more crosslinks. On the weekends, I enjoy climbing and woodworking.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
