The use of NMR to understand protein dynamics in disease

In this video, Prof. Peter Wright from the Department of Integrative Structural and Computational Biology at The Scripps Research Institute talks about how protein dynamics relates to protein function and dysfunction in disease. Wright highlights the benefits of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) over other techniques, including the depth at which it can be used to show the mechanisms of proteins.

Prof. Peter Wright is a professor at The Scripps Research Institute where he runs the Wright Laboratory. His work focuses on the use of high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and other biophysical and biochemical methods to investigate the structure of proteins and map their functional interactions. Wright received his Ph.D in chemistry from the University of Auckland in 1972.
