   Research Group: Multiscale Simulation, Modelling, and Design


Following his graduation in Biochemistry at the University of Oxford in 2001, Peter moved to the LMB to read for a DPhil, supported by a Wellcome Trust Prize Studentship. He was awarded an EMBO Long-Term Fellowship to carry out research at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics in Frankfurt from 2008. In 2010, he became a Lecturer at the University of Cambridge, before moving to BII as Principal Investigator in late 2013, where he established the Multiscale Simulation, Modeling and Design group. The group develops computational models that integrate diverse biophysical and biochemical data to resolve the dynamics of biomolecules over multiple time and length scales, focusing particularly on mechanisms of infectious disease, the host immune response to pathogens, and ultimately, therapeutic intervention strategies. Recent research highlights in the structural virology field include the development of a “virtual dengue virus” as part of an MOE Tier 3 consortium, which is now being extended towards new rational approaches for vaccine and antibody design, funded by an NRF CRP grant. Recent progress has also been made in the area of bacterial pathogenesis, via the discovery of previously undisclosed natural defense and antiseptic mechanisms in wound healing, which may be leveraged to develop new ways to fight infections and inflammatory diseases. Peter currently has >120 publications (H-index 37, ~5000 citations), including work reported recently in e.g. Nature Communications, Science Translational Medicine, and Cell Metabolism.

Peter J. Bond is Principal Investigator at the Bioinformatics Institute A*STAR. He has >15 years of experience in the development and application of multiscale modelling and simulation approaches to understand biomolecular recognition and assembly. As well as gaining fundamental insights into the mechanisms of action of biomolecules, for example in the areas of immunological signalling or membrane transport, he helps to develop new approaches for pharmaceutical intervention in disease states and new applications in (bio)nanotechnology.
