Great news! The "Bionanointerfaces" group received additional funding by the German Research Foundation, allowing us to participate with a research project to the Collaborative Research Centre 1078. In this project, we will use microfluidics to control the electron delivery to single heme-copper oxidases (which are reconstituted in liposomes) in order to study the enzymatic proton turnover at low electron turnover rates.
Matthias will give a talk at the "1. International Symposium on Glycovirology 2018" highlighting his recent work on multivalent inhibitors.
We welcome Lisa Glinzig, who joins the group as Bachelor Student and who will work on developing new approaches to study virus capsid disassembly at biointerfaces.
Stephan's paper combining nanoplasmonics, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, and burst autocorrelation analysis has been published in ACS Nano (link). He will present his findings in a talk at the DPG Spring Meeting 2018 taking place in Berlin.
We received an early Christmas Gift by the Focus Area Nanoscale, who will support a research project aiming to improve the sensitivity in virus detection using capsid disassembly processes.
Great news! The "Bionanointerfaces" group is now associated member of the Collaborative Research Centre 1078, supporting our research activities in the field of quantifying turnover rates of single heme-copper oxidases.
Stephan is among the invited speakers of the Tethered Membranes 2017 conference in Vienna and will present his work on the quantification of virus-receptor and lipid-lipid interactions.
Matthias will present his work on multivalent inhibitors by providing a poster contribution to the "Mucins in Health and Disease" conference taking place in Cambridge UK.
Excellent news! The group "Bionanointerfaces" is now part of the Emmy Noether Programme of the German Research Foundation, providing up to 1.3 Mio € over 5 years to support our research activities in the field of multivalent interactions and massive parallelization of single-molecule force spectroscopy.
We welcome M.Sc. Ömer Akay, who joins our group as Research Associate (currently funded by the Focus Area Nanoscale) and who will combine nanoplasmonics and spectroscopy to improve the sensitivity of virus biosensors.
Happy New Year! We welcome M.Sc. Matthias Müller, who joins our group as Doctoral Student (currently funded by the Research Training Group of the CRC 765) and who will work on the quantification of multivalent virus-receptor interactions and their modification by addition of multivalent inhibitors. He will start his endeavour with an research stay in the group of Jay Kizhakkedathu.
Stephan's paper introducing a new approach for accurate size determination of biological nanoparticles (termed 2D flow nanometry) has been published in Nature Communications (link).
Stephan's paper on the mobility-based quantification of multivalent interactions has been published in Nano Letters (link).
Great news! The "Bionanointerfaces" group is now associated member of the Collaborative Research Centre 765, providing funds to support some of our research activities.
