Eduardo Santamaría visits our lab

He gave a seminar (Wed. 24 Oct) entitled Design and synthesis of photomodulable peptides for biological applications. Eduardo works in Diego Sampedro's group, at the University of La Rioja. They collaborate with us in the design, synthesis and characterization of biologically active peptides coupled to photoswitches, closely in connection to one of our projects

Clues about how channelrhodopsin-2 desensitizates

The work is entitled Photoexcitation of the P4480 State Induces a Secondary Photocycle That Potentially Desensitizes Channelrhodopsin-2 and is a collaboration with the groups of Joachim Heberle and Ramona Schlesinger (Free University, Berlin).

About us

We are a multidisciplinary group (see Members) working at the Institute of Molecular Science - ICMol (Scientific Park of the University of Valencia).
Please, visit the Contact page if you want to get in touch with us.


What we do

We investigate structural and dynamical aspects of membrane proteins and peptides, like folding, active transport and pore formation. We work as well in the optical control of proteins and peptides. Find out more in Projects.


Join us !

Postdocs, PhD students and Master's and graduate students are welcome to work in our group. Contact us for any inquire. Open positions will be announced in the News page and highlighted here in the News board.
