Research topics
  • Structure-Dynamics-Function Relationships
  • Biomacromolecular Complexes
  • EPR Spectroscopy
Our research is driven by the desire to understand structure-dynamics-function relationships in biomacromolecules under native conditions. To this end we 1) develop EPR methods, 2) synthesize new labels and model systems and study 3) the structure and dynamics of proteins, oligonucleotides and their complexes.
