Lawrence McIntosh is a Professor in the Departments of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Chemistry at the University of British Columbia (since 1992). Previously, he was a post-doctoral fellow at the MIT Whitehead Institute (Peter Kim), a graduate student at the University of Oregon (Rick Dalhquist), and an undergraduate at the University of Calgary. He has also spent sabbatical visits at EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany and Grenoble, France.

His laboratory uses NMR spectroscopy and related biophysical methods to characterize the structure and dynamics of proteins involved in signal transduction and the regulation of gene expression. He also studies the synthesis/degradation of carbohydrates, with an emphasis on dissecting the contributions of electrostatics to enzymatic catalysis

Robert Schurko's interest in NMR was piqued by Ted Schaefer at the University of Manitoba where he completed his honours BSc (1992) and MSc (1994) degrees. This was followed by a PhD with Roderick Wasylishen at Dalhousie University (1998), and post-doctoral stints in the labs of Clare Grey (Brookhaven, 1998) and Lucio Frydman (UIC, 1999), before accepting a position at the University of Windsor in 2000.

His group's research is focused on utilizing solid-state NMR spectroscopy to probe the structure and dynamics of a wide variety of inorganic and organic small molecules and materials. Emphasis is placed on developing novel ways to efficiently acquire solid-state NMR spectra of exotic NMR nuclides from across the periodic table.
