Principal investigator: Janos Hajdu
Project title: Structural dynamics of biomolecular systems
Acronym: ELIBIO
Operational programme: Research, Development and Education
Provider: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports
Project number: CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/15_003/0000447
Time period: 1/12/2016 - 31/10/2022

The project explores new frontiers in light and optics to create breakthrough science in biology, chemistry and physics. We will establish an Interdisciplinary Centre of Excellence at ELI-BL for studies on structure, function and dynamics in cells and biomolecules by exploiting ultra-bright light pulses (THz to X-rays) at ELI-BL and at various free-electron lasers. We will develop new methods and technologies to enable measurements and answer key biologically and medically related questions.

This project is co-financed by EU.
