Ken Dill is Director of the Laufer Center for Physical & Quantitative Biology. Currently, he studies the physics of proteins, biological cells, and water. He develops methods in statistical physics and computational biology to learn more about cells and their processes in biology and in diseases. His work has led to insights about how the laws of physics constrain and enable the biological properties and evolution of cells. He is best known for his role with solving the "protein-folding" problem, the question of how a protein’s amino acid sequence dictates its three-dimensional atomic structure. Protein folding rules are offering practical applications in the development of pharmaceuticals and medical diagnostics.
