Welcome to the Crump Group webpages!
Our group is currently studying protein structure and function using principally NMR spectroscopy. Our interests lie in two main areas as follows,
A structural biology approach combining NMR and X-ray crystallography, chemical synthesis and biochemistry to understand the biosynthesis of numerous important antibiotics. This research lies at the heart of synthetic biology and our need to understand and rationally manipulate these systems in order to produce new antibiotics so desperately required over the coming decades.
