- Lydia Kisley, a Beckman-Brown Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellow, and colleagues including Martin Grueble and Deborah Leckband, recently used Fast Relaxation Imaging (FReI) to investigate the folding stability and dynamics of proteins within polyacrylamide hydrogels.
- Martin Gruebele, Sharon Hammes-Schiffer, and Catherine Murphy Elected as Center for Advanced Study ProfessorsEvery few years, CAS elects a few campus faculty to the position of permanent CAS Professor. Jonathan Sweedler is currently a CAS Professor. He will be joined by three new CAS Professors: Sharon Hammes-Schiffer, Catherine Murphy, and Martin Gruebele.
- Martin Gruebele will be awarded the 2017 Nakanishi Prize at the Plenary ACS National Award Ceremony for his landmark spectroscopic studies showing how proteins initiate their folding on ultrafast time scales and how they fold in individual living cells. The Gruebele group uses lasers, microscopy, and computational approaches to explore complex biochemical processes such as transport of unfolded proteins within a cell.
Martin Gruebele and Marinda Li Wu were announced as 2015 American Chemical Society Fellows in the July 13 issue of
When a large protein unfolds in transit through a cell, it slows down and can get stuck in traffic.
Chemistry faculty and affiliates, including Zan Luthey-Schulten, Klaus Schulten, Martin Gruebele, and Taekjip Ha, are part of group grant proposal that has been recommended for funding by the NSF's
Professor Gruebele has been chosen to be featured in a faculty profile in the upcoming textbook Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, & Kinetics by Andrew Cooksy.
Martin Gruebele has been selected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. As a Fellow of the AAAS, he joins the nation's oldest and most prestigious honorary societies.
Martin Gruebele and his team of researchers have developed a new technique to study protein dynamics in living cells.
A new method to induce protein folding by taking the pressure off of proteins is up to 100 times faster than previous methods, and could help guide more accurate computer simulations for how comple
Water molecules and proteins make good dance partners, and LAS scientists have the evidence to back it up.
Martin Gruebele has been elected to membership in the Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina.
Martin Gruebele and collaborators have proven that protein folding modifies water molecules in the environment.
