Mariusz Jaremko

Assistant Professor, Bioscience

Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering Division


Education Profile

  • ​​​​​PhD, Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics of Polish Academy of Sciences (IBB PAS), Warsaw, Poland, 2012
  • MSc, University of Wroclaw, Wroclaw, Poland, 2008

Research Interests

​The research group of Professor Mariusz Jaremko is focused on understanding and describing the basic principles of protein folding and misfolding, as well as the behavior of peptides and Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) under different conditions, including conditions as close as possible to the physiological ones. To achieve these scientific goals, the state-of-the-art techniques of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, together with other biophysical tools, are used. Understanding the biological phenomena which rule the protein folding and dynamics would allow for the design of new safe and biodegradable materials with desired physico-chemical properties, as well as the rational design of new drugs and efficient therapies against numerous neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, and other protein aggregation-related diseases, like diabetes type II.​
