Peter Schmieder: Research

Research Focus
The group Solution NMR spectroscopy uses the full repertoire of solution state NMR techniques in conjunction with a variety of labelling patterns to address questions of biological and pharmacological importance. These range from the development of new techniques for solution state NMR for to the elucidation of the constitution and configuration of biological active peptides to and the determination of the three-dimensional structure of peptides and proteins.
