Biophysical Studies

To complement our high-resolution membrane protein structures, we investigate the function of the proteins by a wide range of biophysical techniques, including substrate binding and transport studies, electrophysiology, microcalorimetry, mass spectrometry (in collaboration with Julian Langer, Department of Molecular Membrane Biology), and atomic force microscopy (in collaboration with Daniel Müller, ETH Zürich).
