Brief presentation of the institution

Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is one of the largest universities in Germany. With its five faculties, FAU offers an almost unique scope of subjects ranging from the Humanities to Law and Economics as well as Sciences, Medicine and Engineering. The close collaboration between the single disciplines is reflected by the University’s Mission Statement "Advance through Networks". FAU thus offers perfect conditions for interdisciplinary research and learning to students and scientists alike.

Moreover, over the last decades, the University has established its reputation as a top-ranking institution in cutting-edge research. It is firmly anchored in a close network of interdisciplinary co-operations. These include partners from industry, specialised non-university research centre and a number of leading international universities.

Within the Metropolitan Region Nuremberg, FAU likewise plays an important role as employer, generator of innovations and centre for education. Due to the close connections between research and teaching, students at FAU receive a well-founded academic training in an inspiring environment.

Main Electroporation related topics

The major focus of our group in the electroporation field is on the modeling of biological membrane mimics and the effect of different membrane composition on the electroporation mechanism. Additionally, the influence of electric fields on membrane-embedded proteins is investigated as well as the influence of external fields on membrane phase transition.

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment

  • Atomistic and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations
  • Semi-analytical models

     

Research topics, techniques and equipment not related to Electroporation

  • Structure-dynamics-function relationship of proteins
  • Protein design
