Metal ions carry out a wide range of essential functions in biological systems. These metals are primarily found in metalloenzymes, which is the main subject of our teaching and research in bioinorganic chemistry – the interface between chemistry, biology and medicine. We offer a wide range of projects, for example:
Genetic engineering (molecular biology)
Recombinant protein expression
Chromatographic protein purification (HPLC)
Synthesis of artificial metalloproteins using anaerobic conditions
Metalloproteins involved in neurological diseases
Studies of enzymatic reactions and enzymatic assays
Characterization of metalloproteins by:
Structural studies, e.g. mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallography
Spectroscopic techniques, e.g. UV-VIS, EPR and Mossbauer spectroscopy
Functional studies, e.g. bioelectrochemistry, functional assays
We offer research based projects on all levels, i.e. both bachelor and master projects and also as special courses. Detailed project descriptions and scope are arranged individually.
Further information on the individual projects is given in the DTU Project and Internship Database on Portalen or by contacting Hans Erik Mølager Christensen, email@example.com, building 207, room 156.
