Zachary Levine, PhD

Assistant Professor Adjunct



Zachary Levine is an Assistant Professor Adjunct of Pathology at Yale School of Medicine. While trained in computational biophysics with special emphasis in protein folding, his interests have recently expanded into solution biophysics measurements of soluble amyloid oligomers. Many of his projects combine atomistic molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with single-molecule fluorescence techniques (smFRET, FCS, and anisotropy) in order to deduce the physical and thermodynamic determinants of age-related diseases.
