Holland Lab Attends Soft Matter Conferences at University of San Diego

In October 2023, the Holland Lab attended the Soft Matter Conference at the University of San Diego. PhD graduate student Hannah Johnson presented her recent work using solution NMR to understand liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) of spider silk proteins as an important intermediate step en route to spider silk formation. Post-doc, Dr. Kevin Chalek presented his recent work on using solid-state NMR to probe dragline and prey wrap spider silk structure in the fibrous form. New PhD graduate student Alexia De Loera presented her solution NMR work on spider silk protein biomimetic peptides. Undergraduate Julian Aldana presented his recent work on molecular dynamics simulation of silk proteins. A number of other new undergraduate and graduate students from the lab also attended to learn more about nationally recognized Soft Matter physics and chemistry researcher.
