X-ray crystallography to investigate mis-folding and ion transport enzymes


Postdoctoral Fellow:  Max-Planck-Institute for Medical Research, Heidelberg
Ph.D., Dr.rer.nat. (summa cum laude):  Ruperto-Carola-University, Germany

Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
  • Molecular Microbiology and Infectious Disease

Research Interests

With X-ray crystallography (including time-resolved crystallography) as our central research technique, we investigate mis-folding pathways of prion and prion-related proteins, Mg-ion transport across cell membranes, and structure-function relationships in enzymes.
