Research Interests

The Van der Wel lab investigates the structure and formation mechanisms of amyloid fibrils and non-amyloid protein aggregates, as well as the interactions between proteins and lipid membranes. Current research includes studies of the molecular mechanisms of Huntington’s Disease and other polyglutamine expansion disorders. Our experiments combine advanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy with complementary biophysical techniques.
