A new paper in Biomacromolecules from Dr Fabio Nudelman and Prof. Philip Camp has revealed new information about the multi-step self-assembly process of collagen fibrils. The work combined mutliple techniques including electron microscopy and molecular-dynamics simulations.

The paper is the culmination of work begun over 5 years ago. Dr Andrew McCluskey, now a data analyser at Diamond Light Source and lecturer at the University of Bath has tweeted about his involvement in the research while an undergraduate with us.
