Project Description

My research focuses developing magnetic resonance techniques for monitoring proteins, lipids, and metabolites in situ and in vivo to gain a molecular level understanding of their complex behaviors. My research group also focuses on specific systems of importance to understanding and remediating disease states using the techniques we develop. Current projects include: 1) the structure, dynamics and function of lung surfactant peptides which traffic lipids in pulmonary surfactant; 2) The development of dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) to examine metabolic flux in vivo; 3) the structure and assembly of proteins in fibril formation and biofilm stabilization; 4) developing DNP approaches for studying membrane protein structures.
