Steven Van Doren earned a Ph.D. in Biophysics at the University of Illinois in 1991. He trained further at the University of Michigan in biophysical NMR, a computation-intensive experimental field. His laboratory strives to enrich molecular medicine with biophysical insight. His group uses NMR to characterize biomolecular recognition, especially dynamic interactions of proteins. His group developed TREND software packages for resolving changes occurring across series of NMR spectra, for use in molecular recognition and drug discovery. They are currently developing the TRENDimaging for resolving and correcting motions in dynamic magnetic resonance imaging.
