Juan M. Lopez, Ph.D.

Scientific Focus Areas: Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics, Structural Biology
Development of improved NMR technology for the study of protein structure and folding.

Professional Experience

  • Research Associate and NMR Facility Manager, Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, 2015-2023
  • Ph.D., University of Lille, 2015

Research Goal

The purpose of my research is to develop and apply advanced nuclear magnetic resonance methods to study biological mechanism.

Current Research

My main topics include the study of protein liquid–liquid phase separation, protein folding by interrupted pressure jump experiments, protein solvent exchange processes, and the development of quantitative pure shift experiments.

Applying our Research

This research will help us understand biological processes at the molecular level.
