Welcome to the 

Biostructural Interactions Group!

We study the molecular mechanisms and motions of (membrane) proteins from microorganism to man

Lab News!

04/2023 Welcome Julius and Yannick for your Bachelor theses! 

03/2023 - Congratulations, Dr Mai! Mai succesfully defended her PhD in probably one of our most interdisciplinary projects yet and did an awesome job! Looking forward to more fun with the Stallforth lab in the next months! 

01/2023 - Welcome Yasmine for your PhD thesis! Great to have you on board!  

01/2023 Welcome "Team Microplastic"! With Ying, Kerstin and Rupali shared among the Papenfort, Stallforth and Hellmich groups in a joint Microverse project , we will investigate the interaction between microbes and micrcoplastic!

New Publications!

Two new pre-prints on microbial virulence factors, their structural dynamics and interaction with inhibitors now available on bioRxiv and chemRxiv!

Our new pre-print on the regulation of the TRPV4 ion channel by its intrinsically disordered N-terminus now on bioRxiv!

New collaborative papers with the Friedland lab (Mainz) on TRPC6 accepted in Molecular Psychiatry, with the Sotriffer and Schindelin labs (Würzburg) on p97 in Communications Chemistry and the Zygmunt lab (Lund) on TRPV2 in Nature Communications! Congratulations to Mai and Christoph from our lab and all other co-authors! 

Awards and Recognitions!

Ute is invited to join the selection committe for the Fulbright-Cottrell Award! 

Our lab is now part of three collaborative research centers funded by the DFG! CRC 1127 'ChemBioSys - Chemical Mediators in Complex Biosystems';  CRC 1278 'PolyTarget -  Polymer-based nanoparticle libraries for targeted anti-inflammatory strategies' and  CRC 1507 'Membrane-associated Protein Assemblies, Maschineries and Supercomplexes'! 

Eric is selected to join the  

TrypsSchool (Sao Paulo School of Advanced  Science on Pathogenic Trypanosomatids)! Congratulations!
