11/2022 Malene is laureate of the Impulscience program of the Bettencourt Schueller foundation. Thanks for the amazing support. Great research ahead.

07/2022 We are grateful to the Agence National de la Recherche (ANR) for funding an exciting project with the groups of Dr. Andres Palencia and Prof. Vincent Cattoir. We will be developing new drugs against pathogenic gram-positive bacteria to fight antibiotic resistance.

02/2022 How can aromatic residues undergo ring flipping in the core of a protein despite engaging in multiple stabilizing interactions to maintain protein fold? Read our new publication in Nature where we reveal the structural changes associated with ring flipping of a core tyrosine. Work led by postdoc Laura Mariño in collaboration with the Palencia group.

01/2022 Our study on the interaction of the SARS-CoV-2 nucleoprotein with its viral partner nsp3a is out in Science Advances. Work in collaboration with the Blackledge team.

11/2021 Read our latest paper in JACS on combining NMR, SAXS and single-molecule FRET for describing the conformational energy landscape of IDPs. A nice collaboration with the team of Sigrid Milles.

08/2021 How can IDPs fold into two different conformations upon binding to different protein targets while keeping the same binding affinity? The key is enthalpy-entropy compensation. Read our new publication here.

07/2021 We are grateful to the Agence National de la Recherche (ANR) for funding our team for 4 years through the ANR collaborative projects call. We are teaming up with the group of Dr. Andres Palencia.
