Dr. Vincent Friebe is funded with an MSCA European Postdoctoral Fellowship for his project B-FHAB “Hacking Photosynthesis: Biosensors for Herbicides and Beyond”.
Prof. Nicolas Plumeré is funded with an ERC Consolidator Grant for his project E-VOLUTION “Electrifying Peptide Synthesis for Directed Evolution of Artificial Enzymes”.
New findings on how to extend the lifetime of biohybrid photoelectrodes over years by sustaining its electron transfer pathways was published by Vincent Friebe and collaborators in Angewandte Chemie!
A perspective on reversible catalysis led by our very close collaborators Vincent Fourmond and Christophe Léger has been published in Nature Reviews Chemistry!
Vincent Friebe will become an independent group leader in the EBT professorship, aming to develop bioelectrochemical sensors that detect pesticide residues with high specificity and sensitivity.
A new publication by Steffen, Stefanie and Filmon on reversible catalysis with hydrogenase has appeared in Nature Catalysis!
With two great publications in JACS Au and Chem, Huaiguang is leaving our group to go as a postdoc to Cambridge. It has been a successful and enjoyable time and we wish him every success in Cambridge!
Priscila receives a Kékule Fellowship from the Verband der Chemischen Industrie e.V. for the development of the electrosynthesis of peptides. With this fascinating project, she will enrich the group with another field of research.
After receiving a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship, Xie begins her research on directed evolution via O2-reducing enzymes. She pursues a completely new electrochemical approach to develop powerful biocathodes.
A wonderful paper by Steffen and Christophe Léger’s group was published in Chemical Communications! This is another important step for biohybrid systems for industrial hydrogen production.
