Prof. Dr. Katherine Henzler-Wildman
UW-Madison (NMRFAM), WI, USA
K. Henzler-Wildman is co-director of NMRFAM and leads the solution NMR and protein production portion of the Covid-19 project at NMRFAM.
She is an expert in NMR of large and dynamic proteins and expression and purification of membrane proteins for NMR. This expertise will support optimization of NMR samples of Covid-19 proteins under physiologically relevant conditions, including membrane-mimetic environments. Her expertise will also contribute to understanding the structural plasticity of Covid-19 proteins, and how their dynamic nature facilitates formation of multiple complexes important in Covid-19 replication and assembly.
