Upcoming seminars and events

Wednesday April 3: Seminar by Akif Tezcan, University of California San Diego

"Functional (Metallo)Protein Assemblies by Chemical Design.”

Time: 15:15 (preliminarily)

Place: Seminar room in Ångström laboratory House 7, Floor 1


Proteins represent the most versatile building blocks available to living organisms or the laboratory scientist for constructing functional materials and molecular devices. Underlying this versatility is an immense structural and chemical heterogeneity that renders the programmable self-assembly of proteins an extremely challenging design task. To circumvent the challenge of designing extensive non-covalent interfaces for controlling protein self-assembly, we have endeavoured to use chemical bonding strategies based on fundamental principles of inorganic and supramolecular chemistry. These strategies have resulted in discrete or infinite, 1-, 2- and 3D protein architectures that display high structural order over large length scales (yet are dynamic/adaptive and stimuli-responsive) and possess new emergent functional, chemical and physical properties. In this talk, I will present some of the synthetic protein assemblies constructed in our laboratory.

Monday April 8: CAP meeting

Place: The Ångström laboratory, Uppsala

Time: 9:00 - 16:00 approximately

Agenda: (tba)

Previous news and events

CAP scientists in the TV news

At the CAP meeting in Umeå, March 4, 2019, CAP researchers were discussing future hydrogen technology. We also had the chance to test drive a fuel cell vehicle that runs on hydrogen gas. Swedish public service television filmed the event, which can be watched here: Vätgasbilar spås ha nyckelroll i framtiden

The First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research was a success!

Over 400 delegates from Europe, and all over the world, discussed recent findings in natural and artificial photosynthesison June 25 - 28, 2018. To see what it was all about, go to the conference homepage: ePS1.org

One of our prominent invited speakers, Junko Yano from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, was interviewed in Swedish national radio. You can listen to the program here (mostly in Swedish).

The CAP workshop 2018

Our annual workshop was held at Sigtunahöjden in Sigtuna, on April 26-27. Thanks for all the interesting presentations everyone, you made the workshop great!
