Seminar by Dr. Ngo Son Tung

On November 15, 2023, the lectures from Dr. Ngo Son Tung take place in the meeting room B.

Dr. Ngo Son Tung presents a talk entitled "Aβ Oligomerization in various environments in silico studies"


The oligomerization of Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides is characterized by Alzheimer’s disease (AD), which is one of the most common forms of dementia. Understanding the structures of Aβ oligomers is thus required to design agents capable of preventing these neurotoxic forms. However, the Aβ oligomers exist transiently, the experimental structure of the forms is prohibited to obtain. The computational approaches thus emerge as one of the most potential tools to estimate the self-assembly of Aβ peptides. In the talk, the achievement of our group over the recent years would be reported.
