About us

Our research group is interested in understanding how RNAs change their structures in order to perform function. Until recently, only snapshots of molecules could be observed, hiding their mode of operation. We employ Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and other biophysical techniques, to investigate the molecular mechanism of RNA function. When function of these molecular machines becomes apparent, it also provides a variety of unique new drug targets. The lab develops methods in NMR and RNA biochemistry to address these questions. Current projects include viral, bacterial and eukaryotic regulatory RNAs, e.g. microRNAs, ribosomal RNAs or RNA from HBV.

Congrats Dr. Hannes!

Congratulations to the talented Dr. Feyrer! Hannes has also contributed to our lab as lab manager during his PhD, protected the lab from RNases! He worked on developing new methods for RNA production and in-cell NMR.

Farewell Natalia!

Natalia Galindo Riera joined Matthew Woods lab in University of Oxford as a part of Margarita Salas fellowship she granted from genetic department of Universitat de Valencia. We will miss you!

Welcome Julie!

Julie is joining the lab as a research coordinator after being a Postdoc at Karolinska Institutet since 2014. Now she’ll be working with us at Biomedicum!
