Research Overview

The department Structural and Medicinal Biochemistry focuses on the elucidation of protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions using biochemical and biophysical strategies in addition to NMR as the main tool for the structure determination of biomolecules. Our research is geared towards predominantly human enzymes/proteins and their macromolecular complexes involved in posttranslational modification processes.

  1. Protein Structure Determination
  2. Biochemical Characterisation of Parvulins
  3. Biophysical studies on the interaction of synthetic supramolecular ligands and proteins
