Gijs Wuite's Biography

Gijs Wuite, Assistant Professor, Vrije Universiteit

Gijs Wuite focuses his research exploring DNA-proteins interactions and biophysical/biomechanical properties of viral capsids & cells. The aim is to work with increasingly more complex assemblies of proteins in order to investigate the emergent properties from these systems. This approach bridges experimental systems biology and single-molecule manipulation techniques. We use a variety of techniques such as optical tweezers, AFM and single-molecule fluorescence as well as combinations of these techniques. The data obtained are related to biochemical studies and used for theoretical modeling. Wuite teaches students in Physics, Medical Natural Sciences, and the Amsterdam University College at the bachelor and master level. He is involved in the development of Amsterdam Faculty of Sciences.. Moreover, he is board member of the Young Academy (KNAW).
