In our group we study protein molecules using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Proteins are the fantastic products of Nature. Encoded by DNA in our genes, proteins are responsible for the way we look, the way we walk, the way we think. Errors in our proteins spell disease, but proteins are also the key to sustainable energy and novel medicines. Obtaining insight into living organisms at the nanoscale is important to understand the wonders of life at a fundamental level.
