RCC partners with several research groups in the Department of Chemistry.

The Brüschweiler Research Group focuses on development and application of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) methods and computational modelling for studying the structure, dynamics, and function of proteins and small molecules, new NMR methods for speed-up and improved sensitivity, and quantitative and automated analysis of metabolomic mixtures.

Dr. Eugene DePrince focuses on producing high-quality electronic structure software, an essential component of modern chemical research, and open-source software, which is particularly valuable. His primary research efforts are dedicated to the development of open-source tools for the description of electronically excited states in complex molecules and materials.

Dr. Christian Bleiholder focuses on determining the structures and interactions of macromolecules by ion mobility / mass spectrometry. We are interested in macromolecular systems of both industrial and biological importance. The two main areas of research are chemokine-mediated chemotaxis of immune cells and the structural determinants of non-conventional oils. The work is a blend of experiment and theory that brings a structural perspective to two of the Grand Challenges of the 21st century, health and energy.
