DFG to fund three new research units
Date:7/17/2013

This news release is available in German.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has approved the establishment of three new Research Units. This was decided by the Joint Committee of the DFG, Germany's central self-governing research funding organization, at its July session, which was held during the Annual Meeting. The purpose of the collaborations is to offer researchers the possibility to pursue current, pressing issues in their subject areas and to establish innovative work directions.

As with all DFG Research Units, collaboration between the new units will be interdisciplinary and span multiple locations. In the initial 3-year funding period, they will receive approximately 6.5 million euros. The number of Research Units currently funded by the DFG is now 221.

The new Research Units
(in alphabetical order by host university)

How does pressure affect solutions of biomolecules? The Research Unit "Exploring the Dynamical Landscape of Biomolecular Systems by Pressure Perturbation" will pursue this question in order to provide a molecular understanding of these effects. This is the subject of analysis because pressure affects the structure and dynamics of biomolecular systems by changing the specific volume. Researchers at the universities of Dortmund, Bochum and Regensburg also want to investigate the self-assembly of proteins and to control processes associated with the membrane and those involving enzymes. They will use a combination of different experimental biophysical methods and high-pressure techniques supplemented by modern theoretical processes to find out about the solvation, dynamic and conformation of biomolecular systems.
