During this period, he collected the very first structural data on alpha-dystroglycan using electron microscopy on the native molecule as well as on some recombinant fragments, thus discovering an N-terminal autonomous module whose structure he subsequently contributed to solve by X-ray crystallography. During his post-doc ...
