Mathias Winterhalter's Research Group


Transport Phenomena

We are interested in the underlying physics of transport phenomena across membranes. For example, we quantify the permeation of antibiotic molecules across bacterial channels, we investigate the condutance phenomena at molecular level and the gating mechanisms in nanopores.


 


Nanoengineered Nanocapsule

Knowledge on selective permeation can be used in the area of nanobiotechnology: using natural or engineered channels as molecular sieves to control substrate permeation. For example we develop such nanometer sized capsules containing enzymes as inside cell reporter.

 

 

 

asMultidrug Efflux

MDE transporters are major contributors to bacterial resistance towards antibiotics and naturally occurring toxic substances. The overall goal of our research is to identify and characterize MDE pumps in environmental bacteria and to gain in-depth knowledge about their regulation, structure, mechanism of transport and natural function.
