Dr. Julien Orts

ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Julien Orts is a junior group leader at the ETH in Zurich, financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Swiss Cancer League. He develops advanced NMR methods for drug design and investigates protein conformational dynamics and allostery. He recently established a method to derive protein-ligand 3D complex structures from solution NMR data, called NNR Molecular Replacement. This approach is robust, fast, and does not require protein resonance assignments. His team focuses on the Main protease.
