New paper: “Minor chemistry changes alter surface hydration to control fibronectin adsorption and assembly into nanofibrils”

Our recent manuscript — “Minor chemistry changes alter surface hydration to control fibronectin adsorption and assembly into nanofibrils” — reports the results of a multi-disciplinary investigation of mechanisms that govern material-driven fibrillogenesis.  Previously, our collaborators in Prof. Manuel Salmeron-Sanchez‘s group at the University of Glasgow showed that fibronectin formed fibril …

Reflective essay on my KURF summer internship

During the summer of 2019, prior to my final year of Mathematics (BSc), I was fortunate enough to be awarded an undergraduate fellowship at Kings College London, in the Department of Physics to work on molecular dynamics simulation. Firstly, I would like to express gratitude to my supervisors, Dr Chris …

New Paper: “On the structure of solid lipid nanoparticles”

In our recent manuscript entitled “On the structure of solid lipid nanoparticles“, we have combined large-scale all-atom molecular dynamics simulations and small angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments to provide the first detailed description of the internal structure and atomistic interactions which govern this structure of liquid and solid lipid aggregates, …

Congratulations to Mohamed Ali for winning Machine Learning competition at PyData2019

During the PyData2019 conference, I took part in the Democracy Hackathon, hosted by Newspeak House (The London College of Political Technologists), which took the format of a Kaggle-style machine learning competition for predicting the turnout of UK general elections. SixFifty has been working hard to source and produce model-ready datasets for solving …

New Paper: “On the interaction of hyaluronic acid with synovial fluid lipid membranes”

Our latest manuscript entitled “On the interaction of hyaluronic acid with synovial fluid lipid membranes” features work by two PhD students in the lab (Paul Smith & Rob Ziolek) and an undergraduate student who worked with us last summer (Elena Gazzarrini).  In this manuscript, we used all-atom molecular dynamics simulations to …
