Prof. Roy Beck

Prof. Beck is an associate Professor at the School of Physics and Astronomy, Tel-Aviv University. His research focuses on a range of topics in biophysics, soft-matter physics and statistical mechanics. 

Research achievements: 

Characterization of delayed and coordinated nucleation of supercooled phospholipid membranes; developing biophysical models to match the measured protein-based hydrogel mechanics and nanoscopic structures originated from the neuronal cytoskeleton; biophysical insights correlating structural phase transition in myelin sheaths as a pathological marker for multiple sclerosis; developing information-based entropy estimators for computer simulation datasets.

 

Future Research Directions:

Developing novel techniques to measure in high throughput transient and reversible interactions between intrinsically disordered proteins; design, measure and model, hybrid polypeptide-hydrocarbon dendrimer amphiphiles that self-assemble into tunable nanoscale structures.
