BioStruct PhD project

Studying Structure, dynamics and topology of membrane proteins by solid-state NMR-spectroscopy
The study of membrane proteins in a native-like lipid bilayer environment remains a major challenge, as such systems often are not easily crystallizable nor solubilizable, conditions which are mandatory for structure determination by X-ray crystallography and solution NMR-spectroscopy, respectively. In the last decade, high-resolution solid-state NMR-spectroscopy has developed into a powerful tool for the investigation of immobilized proteins such as amyloid fibrils and membrane proteins. We will apply solid-state NMR-spectroscopy towards the characterization of structure, dynamics and topology of integral membrane proteins involved in signal transduction processes.
