Prof. Dr. Carlo Camilloni

Integrative Structural Biology

Research Areas

Carlo Camilloni (b. 1981) conducts research in molecular biophysics with a special focus on computational techniques for structural biology. He develops approaches to integrate experimental, physical and statistical information in order to shed light on the molecular basis of biological processes. Examples include the self-assembly of proteins and nucleic acids and the characterization of the role of multiple conformational states in the regulation of signaling and protein misfolding and aggregation. Camilloni studied physics at the University of Milano-Bicocca and in 2008 obtained a PhD in physics from the University of Milano. In 2009, after having worked for six months as an associate researcher at Rottapharm, he was awarded a long-term FEBS fellowship from the Federation of the European Biochemical Societies and joined the biophysics lab of Professor Vendruscolo at the University of Cambridge. From 2012 to 2015 he was an Intra-European Marie Curie researcher and then a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge. In 2015 he took up an appointment as a Rudolf Mößbauer Assistant Professor at TUM.
