Welcome postdoctoral fellow Julian Ilgen, coming from Technical University Darmstadt from his PhD with Prof. Christina Thiele.
Our research group is interested in understanding how RNAs change their structures in order to perform function. Until recently, only snapshots of molecules could be observed, hiding their mode of operation. We employ Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), and other biophysical techniques, to investigate the molecular mechanism of RNA function. When function of these molecular machines becomes apparent, it also provides a variety of unique new drug targets. The lab develops methods in NMR and RNA biochemistry to address these questions. Current projects include viral, bacterial and eukaryotic regulatory RNAs, e.g. microRNAs, ribosomal RNAs or RNA from HBV.
Thank you Sabrina for enriching our lab and good luck with your Master Thesis at the Goethe University in the group of Prof. H. Schwalbe.
Congratulations to Lorenzo (who has joined the Sattler lab for Postdoc) and Christian on receiving the EMBO fellowship for their postdoc work.
Welcome postdoctoral fellow Rubin Dasgupta, coming from Leiden University and congratulations Henry to being accepted as a PhD student – may the force (of research) be with you.
Congratulations to Elnaz, Magdalena and Judith for the publication of their work on the regulatory element 5’SL5a together with the Covid19-NMR consortium
Congratulations to Elnaz Banijamali, Magdalena Riad and Judith Schlagnitweit! Together they have contributed to elucidating the structure of the 5’UTR of the Covid-19 RNA genome, as part of the Covid19-NMR consortium. The paper was marked by the editors as Breakthrough in the journal Nucleic Acid Research.
Hannes Feyrer has received the KI travel grant to perform work on in-cell NMR using DNP together with the Pell lab at the CRMN Lyon, France.
Sabrina Töws does her undergraduate internship with us supported from Erasmus. Sabrina is currently a Master Student in Molecular Medicine at the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany.
