Dennis Kurzbach

Dennis Kurzbach is working on the development of new methods at the interface between biology, physics and chemistry. His research focuses on advancing NMR spectroscopy using hyperpolarisation to open up new possibilities for analysing arrangements of atoms in space and time. In the course of his ERC project, the chemist aims at investigating intrinsically disordered proteins, which play a major role with regard to breast cancer. Kurzbach’s research objective is to investigate the interaction between proteins and transcription factors in real time and under physiological conditions such as in human cells, using dynamic NMR hyperpolarisation.
