NMR of molecular assemblies

Our research focuses on structural biology and biophysics of biological assemblies, ranging from functional amyloids to bacterial nanomachines and lipid membranes. We develop and mainly apply solid-state NMR spectroscopy to capture structural and dynamic details at atomic resolution.

Our group is part of the CBMN, a joint research unit of the CNRSUniversity of Bordeaux and Bordeaux INP. We are located at the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology. We manage the NMR platform of the IECB / CBMN, with NMR magnets ranging from 300 to 800 MHz.
