X-Ray Crystallography

"CSSB offers an attractive combination of biophysical methods for the structural characterization of proteins. Its dedication to targets which are directly relevant for human health, confers a healthy purpose"

Jörg Labahn, CSSB Group Leader

Collaborative Research in Infection Biology

Together with other CSSB researchers his group investigates proteins which are relevant in infection biology. Particularly CSSB‘s combined expertise in imaging and diffraction studies will enhance research opportunities in Membrane Protein Complexes.

A major goal for the next years is to analyze membrane protein structures. In particular, Labahn focuses on developing an approach which allows collecting in-situ diffraction data from crystals obtained with his in-meso-phase crystallization method.
