Chemical Biology and Biophysics of Membrane Proteins


Welcome to the Traaseth Lab in the Department of Chemistry at New York University.

Our research is focused on revealing the molecular mechanisms of membrane transport proteins and the cellular signaling cascade mediated by receptor tyrosine kinases. The long-term goals of our research are to determine the microscopic changes occurring to the structure, dynamics, and function of proteins that underline pathologies affecting human health. In order to characterize these challenging systems, we primarily rely on nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (solution and solid-state NMR).
