Protein dynamics and interactions by NMR spectroscopy

The Hansen Lab focuses on the study of protein dynamics using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques. NMR method development is a major part of our research, as well as the combination of NMR with computational tools. We are particularly interested in the dynamics, function, and regulations of human histone deacetylases (HDACs) and domains of the von Willebrand Factor (vWF).
