Welcome to the Rienstra Group in the Department of Chemistry located at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Our research focuses on developing methodologies and innovating technologies in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (SSNMR) to interrogate the structures of membrane proteins and fibrillar proteins. Our specific goal is to elucidate the physical and structural bases of protein-lipid and protein-protein interactions that drive the assembly of macromolecular complexes.
