Research Interests: Professor Hinck uses methods in structural biology and biophysics to investigate the TGF-β superfamily and their receptors. I am interested in TGF-β superfamily heterodimers and how heterodimeric interfaces modulate binding to type-I receptors. Currently I am using protein crystallography to investigate the structure of the BMP-9/10 heterodimer, which is a TGF-β related protein relevant in vascular development and disease.
