EXROP Projects: Dorothee Kern

Dorothee Kern

Summary

Dorothee Kern uses biophysical analytical techniques to unravel the dynamic personality of enzymes, signaling proteins, and the molecules they affect. She is particularly intersted in the evolution of the impressive catalytic power of enzymes and the evolution of more complex signaling features in higher organisms. To shed light on these fundamental questions, modern and resurrected ancestoral proteins are being studied with atomistic resolution  by combining experiments and computation.
