AG Structural Dynamics and Function of Biological Systems
Molecular Biophysics and Nanomedicine
The focus of the group’s activities lies on the application and development of new spectroscopic, microscopic, and theoretical methods to study protein structure and real-time dynamics, as well as biomolecular interactions on the molecular, cellular and tissue level. Understanding biomolecular interactions also plays a key role in the development of new nanomedical approaches.
Currently, we are working on the following main projects:
- Protonation dynamics, structure, and function of photoreceptors, ion channels and cytochrome c oxidase (SFB1078)
- Nanomedicine: Analytical methods and visualization techniques for investigating nanocarriers and targeted drug release (SFB1112)
