Understanding protein-lipid interactions

We use nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to study the structure and dynamics of membrane proteins, their interaction with the cell membranes, and the lipidomics of cells to better understand the molecular machineries and their important functions in diseases and cure.

We are constantly pushing the limits for the capabilities of current solid-state NMR methodologies to obtain new knowledge about the structure, dynamics, and protein-lipid interactions of complex molecular assemblies such as membrane proteins in the cell membrane. Our methodology-developments target the low sensitivity generally associated with NMR experiments and the level of detail obtained about the molecules in such experiments.

The Danish Center for Ultrahigh-Field NMR Spectroscopy hosts the largest NMR magnet in Northern Europe and other state-of-the-art equipment. We have a strong commitment to provide an attractive platform for welcoming external academic and industrial partners within diverse fields from molecular biology to materials science. As part of this, we have established close connections with numerous academic research groups, industrial partners, and other centers in all of the Nordic and Baltic countries.
