Research Interests

Dr. Akhremitchev research interests are in experimental biophysical chemistry and physical chemistry. Biophysical research focuses on understanding the physico-chemical mechanisms of the initial stages of amyloid fibril formation. Optical and scanning probe techniques are employed to investigate the conformational dynamics and intermolecular interactions of disease-related proteins. Research in physical chemistry concentrates on quantifying the energy landscape parameters of hydrophobic interactions. This research further develops the single-molecule dynamic force spectroscopy to uncover information that is not available by other techniques. Of the related interest is the examination of the systematic errors in force spectroscopy that offset the resulting values of the energy landscape parameters.
