Saurabh Awasthi is a Group Leader at the Adolphe Merkle Institute, University of Fribourg, Switzerland. He received his PhD from the SASTRA University in 2016 for his work on advanced glycation end products induced structure- function changes in proteins. His current research involves the use of biophysical methods to determine the molecular understanding of the disease by characterizing individual protein molecules and amyloid aggregates. One focus area is the single-particle analysis of protein aggregation associated with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
