Steffen Lindert is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Research in the lab focuses on the development and application of computational techniques for modeling biological systems, with the goal of gaining a deeper understanding of biomolecular processes, predicting protein structure de novo with the use of sparse experimental data, and discovering new drugs. The lab is interested in understanding the relationship between dynamics, structure and function in proteins.
Steffen Lindert received his M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Leipzig in 2006 and his Ph.D. in Chemical and Physical Biology (Molecular Biophysics track) from Vanderbilt University in 2011. He joined the laboratory of Prof. Andy McCammon at the University of California, San Diego, as a postdoctoral fellow, where he was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the American Heart Association. He started his research group at OSU in August of 2015.
