DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP
The NMR nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a source of unique information about the structure, interactions, and dynamics of molecules. In particular, it allows to determine the spatial structure of macromolecules of biological significance in solutions, i.e. under conditions approaching physiological, where X-ray crystallography is not possible.

The main goal of our research is to search for new experimental techniques of NMR spectroscopy, their applications in chemistry and biochemistry, as well as new methods of signal processing. We are also working on appropriate computer algorithms, necessary for the analysis of spectra with non- classically sampled indirectly measured time dimensions, as well as for the determination of structurally significant parameters. Due to the great interest and importance of this subject, new ideas and solutions can also be expected.
Our group is the only one in Poland to address the issues of NMR spectroscopy methodology. In recent years, the focus has been on the acquisition and processing of NMR spectra with a high number of dimensions and high resolution capability
Creating and developing new methods for measuring and processing multidimensional NMR spectra and their application in the study of intrinsically disordered proteins. These achievements represent a breakthrough in NMR multidimensional spectroscopy and its applications, especially in biomolecule research. The methodological breakthrough can be compared with the introduction of impulse NMR spectros-copy more than forty years ago
