Head of EMBL SPC FacilityEdit
Our lab is interested in the protein-lipid interactions that keep adaptor proteins attached to the plasma membrane through endocytosis and trafficking. We use an integrated structural biology approach to study the assembly and disassembly mechanisms of these transient complexes.
Our team also develops methods for sample characterisation for SAXS, MX and EM experiments and applies systematic pipelines of biophysical techniques to solve dynamic structural puzzles.
Data analysis platform for molecular biophysics
In collaboration with groups working in the membrane protein field we are developing highly automated pipelines for sample preparation. These will integrate membrane solubilisation, detergent screening, lipid reconstitution and sample optimization in an automated workflow. Funded access to these new pipelines will be available through the EC-funded iNEXT project.
