We study in the functional dynamics of proteins with a particular focus on lipid interactions. Using an integrated structural biology approach centered around NMR spectroscopy we investigate the molecular mechanisms of essential enzymes and their inhibition from infectious disease pathogens, in particular so-called neglected tropical diseases, including RNA viruses.
