Kresten Lindorff-Larsen is a professor at SBiNlab at the Department of Biology at the University of Copenhagen. His group focuses on combining computational methods with experimental data to study the structure, function, dynamics and folding of proteins. Kresten Lindorff-Larsen studied biochemistry at the University of Copenhagen. During this time, he developed a strong interest in […]
Andrew’s academic background is in chemistry, with a Ph.D. specializing in structural biology using NMR, both completed in London, UK. Following that he spent approximately six years as a postdoc in Germany, initially with intentions of pursuing an academic career. After his stint in Germany, he moved to the Carlsberg Laboratory in Copenhagen. During this […]
Søren Balling Engelsen master’s degree at DTU focused on vibrational spectroscopy and the development of molecular mechanical force fields. He also developed software programs for structural modeling of molecules. In his PhD, also conducted at DTU, he further developed this technique to include modeling of lipids and carbohydrates, spending a year at Cornell University, USA, […]
Originally from France, Thibault Viennet embarked on an academic journey that recently led him to Aarhus, Denmark, studying chemical engineering at Lille University in France, refining his skills in analytical techniques. His undergraduate years revealed that his true passion lays in research, diverting him away from a potential future in the industry. Thibault’s academic focus […]
Dan Stærk obtained his degree in molecular biology and biotechnology at the University of Southern Denmark. After completing his thesis, he earned a PhD in the chemistry of natural substances at the Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Dan soon after joined the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH as an assistant professor and […]
Pernille Rose Jensen undertook her PhD studies at UCPH supervised by Flemming Poulsen, focusing on using NMR spectroscopy to study proteins and their dynamics. After finishing her PhD, she travelled to Basel in Switzerland for Post Doc position still focusing on protein NMR spectroscopy. When she returned to Denmark a couple of years later, she […]
Jens Øllgaard Duus is professor at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and a former center leader at the Carlsberg NMR center, where he used NMR to optimize the production of beer. Currently, he applies the techniques acquired from Carlsberg to understand how mutations affect diseases and convert food residues into biofuel. After pursuing his […]
Anders Malmendal was educated as a chemical engineer at Lund University in Sweden and ENSIGC in Toulouse, France. After finishing his master’s thesis, he stayed in Lund to write his PhD in biophysical chemistry. Here, he used NMR to get both structural and dynamic information on how calcium-binding proteins bind calcium cooperatively. Anders has worked […]
Jan Henrik Ardenkjær-Larsen obtained his education as an electrical engineer at DTU. After completing his -master’s thesis, he pursued an industrial PhD at Nycomed, a Norwegian medical company known for producing contrast agents for X-ray, CT, and MR techniques. During his thesis at DTU, Jan Henrik primarily focused on MR, which he continued to investigate […]
Proteins are the building blocks of life itself. Understanding the mystery of these complex molecules is something that has perplexed scientists for centuries, including Professor Kaare Teilum. He uses NMR to better understand the function and structure of proteins, which could help understand some of the most devastating diseases of present time.
Cement is one of the main contributors to CO2 emissions in our world today. Professor Jørgen Skibsted (AU) is trying to better understand the dynamics of cement using NMR, an ideal method for looking at amorphous materials. The ultimate goal is to create a cement that captures CO2.
The green transition is receiving more and more attention, and scientists are working on new and better methods for creating more sustainable and less polluting materials and processes. Sebastian Meier explains why NMR spectroscopy can be a valuable tool for the sustainable sciences, allowing scientists to observe molecules quickly and efficiently, and while they change.
NMR spectroscopy is an important tool in industry as well as in the scientific community. Flemming Hofmann Larsen has been a part of both worlds and has used NMR spectroscopy in a range of different fields including food and drink, health, dermatology, and metabolomics.
NMR has a wide range of uses in the world of science ranging from structural assessment, chemical reactions to quantification. Reinhard’s group at Aalborg University (AAU) illustrates this diversity, as he works across the spectra of NMR uses, applying NMR in metabolomics, proteins, fungi, and industrial processes.
