Idaresit Mbakara visited the Physical Chemistry Department at the University of Geneva in order to deepen knowledge and great interest in ultrafast spectroscopic processes because these processes investigate dynamics of excited states in ultra-short time scales.
The main goal of Łukasz Richter lab visit in a group of prof. Francesco Stellacci „The Supramolecular Nano-Materials and Interfaces Laboratory” was the continuation of the project started during his previous visit to that group. The project focused on the 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 the structure of The Quantum and Molecular Photonics Laboratory (LPQM). His work oscillates around the optical systems with plays an important role in modern research fields such as biology, chemistry physics. The optical system provides fast, non-invaded, and reliable analysis which is beneficial for most experimental setup.
Adam Opalski spent four weeks in the laboratory of Professor Scheler at Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. This visit was funded under the „Lab visit under CREATE project“ competition. Adam tackles the problem of bacteria becoming resistant to drugs and how to combat that adversity.
Dr hab. Adam Kubas, a 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.
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).
