Kelvin’s Research Statement

DSCN0679-Kelvin

Understanding the mechanisms of ion specific effects on proteins is critical for the study of the regulation of ions in biology. I use NMR along with various thermodynamic techniques to probe the microscopic and macroscopic interactions of biologically relevant ions with proteins and model peptides.
