The main goal of Łukasz Richter lab visit in group of prof. Francesco Stellacci „The Supramolecular Nano-Materials and Interfaces Laboratory” was continuation of the project started during his previous visit in that group. The project focused on development of charged nanoparticles and compounds for bacteriophage deactivation.
The main goal of Airit Agasty trip was laboratory training in some specialized fluorescence microscopy techniques at the Department of soft-condensed matter at the Max-Planck Institute of Polymer Research, Mainz, Germany.
Yu-Kai Lai, PhD student went to Clément Lafargue’s group, which is under structure of The Quantum and Molecular Photonics Laboratory (LPQM). His work oscillates around optical system with plays an important role in modern research fields such as biology, chemistry physics. Optical system provides fast, non-invaded and reliable analysis which is beneficial for most of experimental setup.
Adam Opalski spent four weeks in the laboratory of Professor Scheler in Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. This visit was funded under „Lab visit under CREATE project“ competition. Adam tackles problem of bacteria becoming resistant to drugs and how to combat that adversity.
Dr hab. Adam Kubas, member of the Modern Heterogeneous Catalysis Group spent two weeks at the University of California Irvine on a research visit to Palczewski Lab (Center of Translational Vision Research). The US group is now actively working on the E/Z-isomerization of retinoid derivatives.
Izabela Kamińska took part in the competition "Lab visits under the CREATE project”. Her application was awarded to support the visit in the group of Prof. Valerio Pruneri in the Institute of Photonic Sciences and Prof. Tinnefeld in Ludwig Maximilians-Universität München.
The lab visit under CREATE project took place at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry, in the group of Prof. Petra Schwille. During the two-week stay Łukasz Piątkowski worked together with Dr Henri Franquelim, a senior Postdoc specialized in studies of mechanical properties of lipid bilayers.
Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) has emerged as a leading super-resolution imaging approach for nanoscale visualization of molecular structures in cells. During the periods of visiting in the lab of Prof. Rothenberg at New York University, Xuzhu Zhang was trained to perform SMLM experiments regarding on DNA damage response (DDR) of U2OS cells under the treatment of chemical drug Hydroxyurea (HU).
