Miro Astore, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Structural and Molecular Biophysics, CCB, Flatiron Institute

Miro Astore joined the Center for Computational Biology (CCB) in 2022. He was trained at the University of Sydney, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in physics and a doctorate in biophysics. He specializes in modeling the dynamics of proteins to help cell biologists understand the physical basis of life.

For his Ph.D. research, he worked closely with a team of clinicians and cell biologists to expand patient access to life-saving cystic fibrosis medication. Now, he works in the Structural and Molecular Biophysics Group at the CCB to uncover the mechanisms of biological temperature sensors.
