Electrocatalysis will play an increasingly important role in future in the transition to more sustainable energy. Thanks to chemist Isis Ledezma Yanez, we now know more about the hydrogen evolution process. PhD defence on the 9th of June.
Abnormalities in metabolism cause disease in man. Hans Aerts aims to translate the outcome of fundamental biochemical investigations on glycosphingolipids and their metabolizing enzymes to improved diagnosis and rational therapies for inherited lysosomal disorders, neuro-degenerative disease and metabolic syndrome.
Attention LIC PhDs & Postdocs: Integrated Cell Biology: last two sessions this year!
The two last sessions this year of the MSc Course “Integrated Cell Biology” will be held on the following days:

A paper by Manuel Kolb on water adsorption on stepped platinum surfaces, in collaboration with the group of Dan Killelea at Layola University in Chicago, features on the cover of Physical Review Letters.
Researchers from Leiden University, Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the Technical University of Munich have boosted the efficiency of water electrolysis. They located a layer of copper atoms near the surface of conventional platinum electrodes.
NWO has awarded a prestigious VICI grant to Remus Dame. With this grant he will strengthen his research programme on dynamic organization of the bacterial genome. Specifically, he will investigate the molecular mechanisms that drive changes in genome organization in response to environmental cues, the effect of these changes on specific environmentally regulated genes and the resulting physiological response.
