Description

Recent research has shown that a large share of proteins gains functional advantages by remaining natively unstructured. This challenges well-established concepts in structural biology. In this frame, NMR plays a strategic role (see also EAST-NMR). The highly dynamical properties of such “intrinsically disordered proteins” are characterised in atomic resolution and the possible reorganisation by interaction with partners in their environment is followed.

The IDPbyNMR project aims to establish a framework to train a new generation of young researchers in this emerging area. The network offers a multidisciplinary training programme as to transfer not only know-how in the scientific field but also in complementary skills, like e.g. project management and intellectual property rights. Nowadays, scientific excellent is not sufficient to compete, Complementary Skills are indispensable to succeed.

The project is funded under the Marie Curie programme of the European Commission and coordinated by the CERM Magnetic Resonance Center in Florence.
