The focus of my research group is to understand the molecular mechanisms that regulates signalling enzymes. We combine the information derived from biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, and additional biophysical techniques, such as ITC, DSC, Biacore, and CD spectroscopy. Enzymes of key interests are ser/thr protein phosphatases (PP1, PP2B), tyr phosphatases and ser/thr kinases, especially MAP Kinases. Furthermore, my research group is pursuing an molecular understanding for the formation of bacterial biofilms.
