November: Tomas Lebl and the Westwood group publish their study on the fractionation and DOSY NMR of lignin and Katrin could add some cw EPR to back up that high molecular weight fractions seem more radical...
October: Attention, attention: The group advertises two competitive studentships within the eastbio DTP for four year fully funded PhD projects. We lead a project with Graham Smith from physics looking to apply kilowatt EPR at 95 GHz to structural biology. Carlos Penedo leads a project into helicase mechanisms we are involved in. Spread the word, please.
Bela gives a talk at the Birthday-Symposium of Prof. Thomas Prisner in Frankfurt who turned 60 this year. Happy Birthday Thomas!
September: Lewis joins the group for his honours project, welcome on board!
Katrin's and Silvia's paper on Sparse labeling PELDOR spectroscopy on multimeric mechanosensitive membrane channels has been accepted by the Biophysical Journal, keep up the good work!
August: Clemence and Tobias finish their projects, well done and all the best!
The whole group gears up for USIC 2017 with Sonia as conference chair!
