About the Winner


Józef Lewandowski received his BA in Chemistry and Theatre/Dance from Amherst College (USA) in 2002 and his PhD in Physical Chemistry from MIT (USA) in 2008. His PhD thesis, under the guidance of Professor Bob Griffin, concerned development and applications of solid-state NMR methods to study structures of proteins. In 2008, he moved to CRMN de Lyon (France), where as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow in the group of Professor Lyndon Emsley, he worked on developing solid-state NMR methods to study protein dynamics. In 2011, he joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick where he established his independent research group. In 2015, he was awarded the Anatole Abragam Prize from International Society of Magnetic Resonance.  He currently holds an ERC Starting Grant to study the structural dynamics of protein complexes by solid-state NMR.

Józef's research involves development and applications of solid-state and solution-state NMR to study structures and dynamics of proteins from amyloid fibrils, crystalline and membrane proteins to protein complexes. In particular, currently Józef's group studies a range of systems that can potentially lead to the development of new solutions to tackle the growing problem of antibiotic resistance.
