Predicting the folded structure of a protein requires a detailed understanding of the fundamental forces that drive protein folding, and obtaining this understanding is an ongoing challenge involving several scientific disciplines. In her PhD thesis, Adriana Huerta Viga provides experimental evidence of how detecting the coupling between vibrations using two-dimensional infrared (2D-IR) spectroscopy can give access to structural information at the molecular level of proteins and peptides.
