Welcome to Niko Loening's site
I'm an associate professor in the chemistry department at Lewis & Clark College. This fall I'm teaching Chem 110L (General Chemistry I Lab), Chem 330 (Structural Biochemistry), and Chem 405 (Chemistry Seminar). My research interests lie in the development and application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Before coming to the college, I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow with Bob Griffin at MIT and before that I was at the University of Cambridge where I worked on my PhD thesis under James Keeler. I spent the 2006-2007 academic year on a research sabbatical at the Medical Research Council - Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, where I worked on determining protein structures using NMR spectroscopy. More recently, I spent the 2010-2011 academic year on a research sabbatical in Berlin, Germany, working at the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology, and Spring 2012 in Australia leading a Lewis & Clark Overseas Program.
