    Research Interests

    Joel Wurzel joined the group in November 2012. As a member of a European partnership, he aims to obtain precise information concerning properties, structure and conformational changes of specific proteins under certain conditions. For this purpose, a magnetic manipulation system combined with an atomic force microscope and functionalized nanowires will be utilized.
