Welcome Nicolai!

 Nicolai Alsaker has recently joined the department as a PhD student working with Willy Nerdal, Bengt Erik Haug and Nathalie Reuter on the FriMedBio-funded PePrMInt project. During the PhD project he will use solid state NMR to study the interaction between lipid membranes and model polypeptides in order to better understand the peripheral membrane protein interactome.

He holds a BSc and MSc in organic chemistry from NTNU, during which he worked with NMR structural characterization and total synthesis targeted towards natural products. He also spent some time working at GE Healthcare developing a synthetic route for new contrast medium.
