Description

The Third Coast CFAR is hosting a hybrid seminar, “Multiscale Computational Studies Reveal Key Insights Into the Molecular Processes Underlying the HIV-1 Lifecycle,” featuring
Gregory A. Voth, PhD, at the University of Chicago. Voth will present advances in computational methodology designed to simulate complex biomolecular systems across multiple lengths and time scales. Examples include results relevant to the maturation of the HIV-1 virion, the HIV-1 capsid assembly, the interaction of cofactors and drugs such as Lenacapavir with the capsid, and the entry of the capsid into the nuclear pore complex on its way to the interior of the infected cell nucleus.
