Three Nanoscience students win Top Sector Chemistry Competition Grant

01 July 2014

The Top Master Nanoscience students Konstantin Balinin, Dmytro Bederak and Nataliia Sukharevska have been awarded an NWO grant of EUR 27,000 to carry out a project in the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials. The student team called “Nanosled” will pursue research dealing with a short peptide from adenovirus that has the remarkable ability to slide over DNA. 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.
