Best Poster Award for Agnieszka Adamska

Agnieszka Adamska recieved best poster award at Hydrogenase-Research

Agnieszka Adamska, PhD student in the department of Prof. Lubitz, was awarded for the best poster presentation at the <link internal link in current>Symposium „Catalytic Systems for Chemical Energy Conversion“ in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany.

Agnieszka Adamska is working on solving the mechanism and maturation of [FeFe] hydrogenases which are the most effective enzymes in hydrogen production. Mimics of the active site play very important role in understanding how structural details determine activity of the enzyme.

On her poster „Artificially maturated [FeFe] hydrogenase from C. reinhardtii: HYSCORE and ENDOR study of a non-natural H-cluster” she presents new types of such mimics embedded into protein and study of its electronic structure by using advanced EPR methods.
