SO = Scientific Objectives;
TO = Training Objectives.
SO1: Analysing controlled nucleation to prepare nano- and micro- crystals.
SO2: Design and construction of in situ dynamic light scattering to support sample on demand measurements.
SO3: Design of advanced sample delivery methods supporting pump probe experiments.
TO1: Training in the advanced in situ light scattering techniques.
TO2: Training in applying the XtalController methods for distinct crystal growth.
TO3: Training in scoring and preparing nano-crystal suspensions.
Designing crystallization experiments applying in situ dynamic light scattering to control nucleation and crystal growth towards controlled preparation of nano- and micro-sized crystals. The ESR will be trained applying complementary bioanalytical and biophysical methods to prepare nano-crystals and to prepare and score protein solutions for time resolved measurements. In situ– and flow-experiments with adapted multi-channel DLS systems allowing online analysis of sample solutions.
Involvement with other tasks: The ESR will be trained in data analysis and all methods of structure analysis. All partners of the research collaboration are invited to perform experiments with the XtalControlller setup.
Local Training: The ESR will be enrolled as a PhD student at the University of Hamburg (UHAM). Prof Christan Betzel will act as the Co-Supervisor. The ESR will benefit from courses offered in molecular life sciences and physics and local graduate schools, and soft- and key- skill courses offered by UHAM.PUBBLICATIONS
