Barry Isralewitz, Ph.D. works as a research programmer for the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received his doctorate in Biophysics from the University of Illinois in 2007. In his doctoral work, Isralewitz performed some of the earliest steered molecular dynamics simulations, including modeling force application to titin domains, and studied stalk rotation and domain interaction in ATP synthase. As a post-doctoral researcher and then as a research programmer, Isralewitz has developed multiple computational tools to analyze, visualize, and animate molecular dynamics simulations.
