Structural Biology: Biophysics of membrane protein transporters

NATHANIEL TRAASETH

Research Description
Our research is focused on revealing the molecular mechanisms of membrane transport proteins and the cellular signaling cascade mediated by receptor tyrosine kinases. The long-term goals of our research are to determine the microscopic changes occurring to the structure, dynamics, and function of proteins that underline pathologies affecting human health. In order to characterize these challenging systems, we primarily rely on nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (solution and solid-state NMR).
