CHOW LAB

We use solid-state NMR spectroscopy to bring new insight to biomolecules in the extracellular matrix that are relevant to human health and disease. We are based at the University of Warwick, UK.

New applications of solid-state NMR to the extracellular matrix

SsNMR is a versatile technique that can provide atomic-level structural information on complex materials in functionally-relevant states, with unique advantages for investigating the extracellular matrix.

Pigmentation in alkaptonuria

Alkaptonuria is a rare disease that can lead to servere pigmentation of various body tissues, which is associated with tissue degradation. While visually striking, the chemical nature of the pigment is still not well-understood. By characterizing in vitro-generated pigment using a variety of chemical techniques, we aim to understand the nature of the pigmentation species and illuminate new clinical approaches to prevent or reverse its formation.
