Dr. Martin Blackledge
The main research interest of the Blackledge group is the study of protein dynamics by NMR, often combined with complementary biophysical techniques and advanced molecular simulation. Most recently he uses these techniques to describe the functional role of highly flexible or intrinsically disordered proteins, to map their interaction mechanisms at atomic resolution. Amongst other applications these methods are applied to understand the role of conformational disorder in the replication and transcription in RNA viruses. He is recipient of an ERC Advanced grant to study dynamic assemblies in Measles and related viruses. He has published 245 articles and has an h-index of 60.
