Research

Structural studies on molecules of biological and medical interest using integrated structural biology, combining protein X-ray and neutron crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy and small angle X-ray scattering, in particular: 

  • enzymes from the ribonucleotide reductase family, in particular the role of the ATP-cone domain in nucleotide-modulated allosteric activity regulation
  • glypicans and enzymes involved in heparan sulphate biosynthesis
  • inhibitor design against the galectin family of proteins

I also participate in management of a facility for protein crystallisation and characterisation at  Lund Protein Production Facility (LP3). I represent the Science Faculty in an initiative to build a stronger community for single-particle cryo-electron microscopy at Lund University and I am the University's representative in the User Reference Group for the Cell and Molecular Imaging platform at SciLifeLab.
