We study the structure and dynamics of membranes and proteins using X-ray and neutron scattering techniques. With our equipment, we prepare
and characterize artificial and biological membranes, composed of
different types of lipids, membrane active molecules and proteins and
peptides. Our goal is to study proteins at
work and understand the influence of membrane composition and properties
on protein interactions and function.
We are working closely with the Canadian Neutron Beam Centre in Chalk
River, where we do most of the neutron experiments.
