Neutronenstreuexperimente zeigen den Einfluss der Form roter Blutkörperchen auf molekulare Eigenschaften des Sauerstoff-Transportproteins Hämoglobin.
Neutron Research: Shape of Red Blood Cells Influences Oxygen Transport
Red blood cells in the blood of higher vertebrates are used to transport oxygen via the cardiovascular system. For this purpose, blood cells are tightly packed with the protein haemoglobin, which reversibly binds and releases oxygen. An international research team led by Jülich physicist Dr. Andreas M. Stadler has now discovered that the molecular properties of the proteins depend on the shape of the blood cells.

SFB 985 Functional Microgels and Microgel Systems

The collaborative research center 985 brings together research groups from polymer science, chemical engineering and life sciences and focuses on microgels as a group of highly functional macromolecules. Microgels combine openness with interactive responsiveness and thereby form a synthetic base for novel functionality. JCNS-1 contributes time-resolved scattering techniques to study the microgel response over time scales form microseconds to minutes. More

SFB 840 From particulate nanosystems to mesotechnology

The collaborative research center 840 focuses on mesostructured systems where “meso” not only refers to a length scale. Rather concerted, programmed interactions beyond the molecule, beyond the individual nanoparticle are utilized to generate meso-immanent properties at the next hierarchical level. JCNS-1 investigates the controlled assembly of polymer-functionalized nanoparticles into mesoscale superlattices. More

Biofab

SFB TRR 225 Biofabrication

The transregional collaborative research center TRR 225 explores methods for tissue biofabrication. It focuses on bio-inks and 3D-printing techniques to print cells into functional tissue models. JCNS-1 develops microfluidic methods to encapsulate cells for integration into bio-inks and functional polymer micro environments. More

DFG Priority Program 1681 Field-controlled particle matrix interactions

The use of magnetic fields is an external stimulus for the control of material properties, which is of considerable technical interest, since magnetic fields can easily be generated and controlled. The priority program spans the field from the synthesis of magnetic hybrid materials over the characterization of material behavior and microstructure and their theoretical description towards technical and medical applications. JCNS-1 investigates the magnetic field-induced formation of ordered superlattices of magnetic nanoparticles in polymer matrics. More

DAAD

DAAD Thematic Network Bayreuth-Melbourne Colloid/Polymer Network

This research and training network links the University of Bayreuth and non-university research institutions within Germany with two outstanding Australian universities, the University of Melbourne and Monash University, for the exchange of junior researchers. JCNS-1 has collaborations with the groups of P. Mulvaney and F. Caruso at the University of Melbourne. More
