Current Research Projects

The focus of our research at the LfK is on the development of novel crystallographic techniques and methodologies, and the application of these methods to materials of non-biological origin (structure analysis of biological macromolecules is covered by the Institute for Molecular Biology and Biophysics). Our current research projects are listed below by research group. For further details, click on the picture or use the navigation bar on the left.
