Research Description

We merge development of magnetic resonance and analytical methods, building specialized spectroscopic instrumentation, fabricating nanostructures, and synthesizing molecular probes to understand structure, dynamics, and function of membrane proteins in lipid bilayers and to use this information for building hybrid nanostructures for biomedical uses.
