“Physical Biochemistry of Amyloidosis Disease”
Dr. Hall's research program involves the application of physical chemistry / biophysics type theoretical and experimental approaches to the study of three disease states (i) cancer, (ii) virus infection, and (iii) amyloidosis proteopathies. This talk will provide an introductory survey of these three areas before focusing on recent research progress related to the amyloidosis diseases. Various biophysical aspects, including disease modelling, amyloid metrology and statistical analysis of amyloid assays, will be discussed.
