Welcome to the Reif group - Biological Solid-State NMR


We have two openings for PhD student positions ! - Please refer to Jobs.

Our group is interested in the structural characterization of biomolecules using MAS solid-state and solution-state NMR spectroscopy, with focus on amyloidogenic peptides and proteins, and membrane proteins. Our research is divided into the areas 1) Understanding of the mechanisms that lead to protein aggregation at atomic resolution, 2) Investigation of large protein complexes that are not amenable by solution-state NMR or crystallography, 3) Membrane protein structure and 4) Development of methods in solid-state NMR for quantification of structure and dynamics of biomolecules.

We currently host Prof. Dr. Ayyalusamy Ramamoorthy, University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, as a Hans-Fischer-Senior Fellow at the IAS-TUM

The group is integrated into the Bavarian NMR Center, and associated with the Institute of Structural Biology at the Helmholtz-Zentrum München
