Steffen Lindert

Associate Professor

Lindert’s research focuses on developing and applying computational techniques for modeling biological systems to gain a deeper understanding of biomolecular processes, predicting protein structure de novo using sparse experimental data, and discovering new drugs. As a postdoc at the University of California, San Diego, his research focused on macromolecular simulations of proteins involved in cardiomyocyte contraction and computer-aided drug discovery. He was also awarded a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship from the American Heart Association. Lindert earned a BS and MS in physics from the University of Leipzig, Germany, and a PhD in chemical and physical biology from Vanderbilt University.
