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.

News

Welcome Joanna!

We’re welcoming our new postdoctoral fellow Joanna who is joining us after a postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical University of Warsaw, Poland.

Welcome Wei-Tse

Wei-Tse is a first-year bachelor’s student at Karolinska Institute who joins the lab for an internship during the summer

Congratulations Dr. Hampus

Good bye and good luck to the talented and newly graduated Doctor Karlsson! We are sure Hampus’ skills will be equally appreciated in Göteborg during his postdoctoral experience there. You will be missed.
