Experiment reaches biology milestone with hard X-ray laser
Date:2/2/2011

principle investigator and Fromme, Doak, Weierstall and Schmidt are co-investigators on a recent grant from the National Science Foundation to study the dynamics of electron transfer. The major goal of the grant is to unravel the conformation changes involved in the inter-protein electron transfer between the membrane protein complex photosystem I and the soluble electron acceptor protein ferredoxin by light induced time resolved femtosecond crystallography.

Fromme is leading another team that includes Spence, Doak, Weierstall, Schmidt and Alexandra Ros, assistant professor in chemistry as recipient of a new $1.46 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to further study femtosecond nanocrystallography of membrane proteins. "The aim of the grant is to develop the new method further, which may well revolutionize the field of structural biology. That said, the innovations developed for this grant will surely produce exciting and radically new research activities," said William Petuskey, chair of ASU's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
