Welcome to CRC 1093
Supramolecular Chemistry on Proteins
Protein function is intimately connected with supramolecular chemistry: Substrate processing and various levels of regulation involve specific noncovalent interactions. Likewise, protein folding, assembly and protein-protein interactions are governed by intermolecular forces and their specific inhibition or support represents a very promising area for external interference, with profound mechanistic and therapeutic implications.
The CRC aims at applying recent knowledge and methods from supramolecular chemistry to achieve specific interaction with proteins by artificial ligands.Overview
Sofja Kovalevskaja-Award for Doris HellerschmiedProtein Folding and Stress
Dr. Doris Hellerschmied examines how cells react to molecular forms of stress. She is one of six winners of the Sofja Kovalevskaja-Award of the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung. She has received 1.65 million euros to establish an independent research group at the UDE. Read more
We all grieve the loss of our dear colleague and friend Prof. Dr. Carsten Schmuck who passed away on August 1, 2019. Carsten was an excellent scientist, teacher and mentor. His excellent research within the field of supramolecular and combinatorial chemistry and his extraordinary commitment as a group leader and vice speaker was highly appreciated in our consortium. We sorely miss him. He will be in our thoughts. More
New Associated Member Doris Hellerschmied joins the CRC1093
Doris Hellerschmied has been appointed as a group leader at the Faculty of Biology recently and will start now to collaborate with several groups within the CRC as an associated member. She will study the molecular interactions between chaperones and their client proteins, and modulate these interactions with chemical probes (read more).
The keynote lecture of Dr. Gaby Schilling is the opening event for the 3-days autumn school for CRC PhD-students and Postdocs offering several workshops and individual coachings about leadership, project management, and career planning (view program).
The lecture starts on Monday, Sept 30 at 11:15 am in S07 S00 D07. Guests are most welcome.
