Viet Man

Postdoctoral Research Associate


Dr. Viet Hoang Man earned BS and MS degrees in Physics from Hanoi University of Science (VNU). He worked as lecture on Physics at Thainguyen University of Sciences from 2003 to 2008. He performed his Ph.D study at Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IFPAN) and received Doctorate in Physics in 2013. He joined North Carolina State University in October 2013 as postdoctoral research scholar in Prof. Christopher Roland and Prof. Celeste Sagui's group.

His research interests include Biophysics, computational biology, biomolecular simulation, folding and misfolding kinetics of proteins, drug design, binding affinity, and free energy. His research accomplishments include the first theoretical demonstration of the correlation between the binding affinity and aggregation inhibition of beta-sheet breaker peptides to Amyloid Abeta peptides, and discovering some small molecule and short tripeptides as candidates for Alzheimer's Disease drugs.
