Three TOP Master Nanoscience students win Top Sector Chemistry Student Competition grant

13 juni 2014

Congratulations to the TOP Master Nanoscience students Konstantin Balinin, Dmytro Bederak and Nataliia Sukharevska. They received a grant from NWO of 27.000 Euro to carry out a summer project in the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials at the University of Groningen. The student team called “Nanosled” will pursue research dealing with a short peptide from adenovirus that has the remarkable ability to slide over DNA. They will exploit this property to target chemotherapeutic agents to DNA and improve drug action. Moreover, based on the sliding peptide, they will develop novel, non-toxic staining reagents for nucleic acids. The research work will be carried out in the laboratories of Prof. Andreas Herrmann and Prof. Antoine van Oijen.
