Research

The aim of the research in our lab is to understand the conformational switches of proteins with particular emphasis on amyloid disease and trans-membrane signaling. We use a variety of techniques to solve the structures and to study the conformational transition of amyloidogenic proteins and membrane proteins including as a major experimental tool Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR).
