The Department of Bionanoscience focuses on the fundamental understanding of biological processes, from the level of single molecules to the full complexity of living cells. This research provides fascinating insight in the molecular mechanisms that lead to cellular function. Furthermore it enables the in vitro bottom-up construction of cellular machinery and it impacts applications ranging from biomolecular diagnostics to novel antibiotics and targeted nanomedicine. The department features a strongly multidisciplinary and international team of scientists, whose research areas include single-molecule biophysics, synthetic biology, as well as (quantitative) cell biology.
Hyun Youk selected as EMBO Young Investigator
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) has selected Hyun Youk and 25 other life science researchers within their first four years as group leaders to become EMBO Young Investigators. Youk will join an active network of 102 current and 314 past Young Investigators and will receive support from EMBO during the foundation of their first independent laboratory.
