Structural Microbiology

We study how bacteria communicate with their hosts, how they communicate with each other, and how they communicate with other micro-organisms using a combination of structural biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology.

In particular we use X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and computational modeling combined with other biophysical and biochemical techniques to explore the function and role of bacterial proteins of interest.

The Prehna lab is currently looking for students at the MSc and PhD level interested in structural biology.
