NMR-Based Structural Chemistry

To be able to develop new drugs against infectious diseases we need to uncover their molecular basis. Therefore it is essential to understand how pathogens replicate, how they interact with the host and how these processes are regulated. The research group NMR-based structural chemistry investigates RNA_protein complexes involved in various aspects of infection, from both the pathogens and hosts life cycle.
