Institute of Physics,
Marek Cieplak is the Head of Laboratory of Biological Physics, Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland. He completed MS, Department of Physics, University of Warsaw, 1973; PhD, Department of Physics, University of Pittsburgh, 1977; DSc, Department of Physics, University of Warsaw, 1984. His fields of interest are: condensed matter theory (spin waves, spin glasses, porous media, growth processes, atomic friction, river networks, nanofluidics, selforganized nanostructures) and biological physics (large conformational changes of biomolecules within coarse-grained models, especially as induced by stretching, proteins with knots and slipknots, protein folding, dynamics of virus capsids and other multi-proteinic structures such as a cellulosome, interaction of proteins with solids, proteins at air-water interface, modeling of proteasomes, inference of genetic networks from the microarray data). He is the Co-author of textbook “Theory of Quanta”, Oxford University Press 1992 and has published 250 research papers.
