Professor, Department of Biochemistry, Amsterdam
Prof. Rolf Boelens (1951) studied physical chemistry at the University of Groningen (Netherlands). He completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Biochemistry of the University of Amsterdam with a study on ligand binding and electron transfer in cytochrome c oxidase using EPR. For a postdoc he went to the NMR group of Robert Kaptein.
The research group studies structure and dynamics of protein and protein-DNA complexes involved in gene regulation, transcription and DNA repair. For this research we use high-resolution NMR and develop new methodology as well.
