Information
Advanced biophysical research in the framework of a new collaborative research center (CRC1078, see www.sfb1078.de). The integrated graduate school provides state-of-the-art training in new concepts of experimental and theoretical biophysics. The experimental project involves time-resolved tracking of protein function in photoynthetic water splitting after excitation with nanosecond Laser pulses employing infra-red and other spectroscopic methods. In conjunction with the Berlin cluster of excellence on unifying concepts in catalysis (see www.unicat.tu-berlin.de/), also a research focus on biomimetic catalysts for artificial photosynthesis (that is, use of solar energy for production of non-fossil fuels) is conceivable.
