Our general aim is the structural and functional characterization of proteins and protein complexes from human pathogens. We seek to understand how these proteins contribute to the establishment of manifest disease as well as to identify drug targets for the development of novel antimicrobial therapies. We use X-ray crystallography as primary technique for structure determination as well as a wide array of biochemical and biophysical methods to complement our structural studies.
