Research program
Our research program is divided in three main themes in which complex biological systems are studied using mainly solid- and solution-state NMR:
(1) Studies of membrane systems including the development and characterization of lipid model membranes and their interaction with model systems.








(2) Studies of the molecular structures of natural protein fibers and their use in the development of new biomaterials.








(3) Method development for the studies of structure, molecular organization and interactions of intact unicellular microorganisms (bacteria and microalgae).

  • Our projects also cover applications related to environmental issues and drug development.
  • Our equipment includes a solids/liquids 600 MHz spectrometer, and a widebore solids 400 MHz spectrometer.
