Research Interest

Functional and structural aspects of membrane proteins, including

  • ABC transporters
  • secondary transporters
  • GPCRs
  • microbial rhodopsins (light driven ion pumps and channels)
  • lipid regulators

Main Methods

  • Solid-state NMR of reconstituted membrane proteins at high field (up to 850 MHz)
  • Dynamic nuclear polarization
  • Membrane protein wet lab
  • reconstitution of membrane proteins
  • Stabel isotop labelling of membrane proteins
  • Trapping of states that occur during the activity cycle of the integral membrane proteins under study
