Dr. Albert Guskov from the
Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB) has received a NWO ENW-KLEIN grant for his project ‘Time-resolved dynamics of glutamate transporters’. The grant is worth EUR 350,000. In the research project, a molecular movie
about changes that take place in a protein that is essential for the normal functioning of signal transmissions in our nerves
Guskov will do this by combining advanced time-resolved crystallography (which allows observations of movements of single atoms) with recent advances in photopharmacology (which produces prototypes of future medications that can be activated by light). The movie will help us to understand the fine details how such proteins work and will also contribute to the development of these light-activated drugs.
The ENW-KLEIN grant offers researchers the opportunity to establish scientific innovations that can form the basis for the research themes of the future. In this round, the Board of NWO Domain Science has awarded 20 applications, of which 2 at the UG.
