Martina Havenith beat a fierce competition envisioning a new method to infer real time heat and energy changes at the protein-solvent interface.
The pan-European funding body ERC (European Research Council) will finance the team of Prof Dr Martina Havenith from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) with 2.5 million Euros in five years to develop a ground-breaking methodology called “Time-Resolved THz-Calorimetry”. Scientists will tinker with Terahertz (THz) laser spectroscopy to deduce with nanosecond precision how proteins and solvent exchange energy and rearrange themselves in a biological process.
More than 30 research groups at the Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry as well as individual departments at four Max-Planck Institutes offer plenty of interdisciplinary research opportunities in a stimulating and state-of-the art research environment.
