Collaborations

Our research program requires of a broad range of methods and expertise. Building on a comprehensive competence in synthetic chemistry, homogeneous catalysis and molecular biology we have established a strong network of partners, providing access to state-of-the-art methods.

Industrial Collaborations


Dr. Scott Bailey, R&DC, Aramco
Collaborative project with Aramoc R&D Center on biological carbon-capture & conversion (bio-CCC)
 
 

In-KAUST Collaborations


Prof. Uli Stingl, Prof. John Archer, Prof. Vladimir Bajic
On identification, optimization and application of new extremophiles. This collaboration is part of two externally sponsored projects (Aramco, SEDCO). The BOC research group is responsible for expression, characterisation and application of gene constructs. Meetings with all participating PI‘s, post-docs and students will be held.

Prof. Samir Hamdan
On in vitro incorporation of unnatural amino acids, particularly for site directed fluorophor labeling of proteins. This is part of a FIC project. The BOC research group synthesises the unnatural amino acids (uaa), fluorophores and uaa-dinucleotide conjugates required for this approach. Weekly meetings are held with Prof. Hamdan and all participating post-docs/students.

Prof. Udo Schwingenschlögel
On prediction of properties of self-assembled peptide metal conjugates forming 1-dimensional rows of metal centers. The BOC research group is responsible the experimental part (synthesis and analytics). Bi-weekly meetings are held with Prof. Schwingenschlögel and all participating post-docs/student.

Prof. Jean Marie Basset, Prof. Vivek Polshettiwar, Prof. Kazuhiro Takanabe, Dr. Paco Laveile (KCC)
On establishing gas-phase biocatalysis for whole cell applications. The BOC research group provides immobilized enzymes and whole cell biocatalysts, which are optimized for the respective catalytic conditions. Bi-weekly meetings are held with all participating PI‘s, post-docs and students.
 
Prof. Jürgen Kosel
On electro-patterned microarrays, which in combination with electrochemical detection will be investigated as diagnostic tool facilitating highly parallelized activity determination for pharmacologically important enzymes or other biomarkers. Monthly meetings are held with Prof. Kosel and all participating post-docs/students.

Prof. Jasmeen Marzeban
On cytostatic activity of metal complexes with amion-acid derived ligands. The BOC group is responsible for synthesising a large variety of potential cytostatic organometallic compounds. Monthly meetings are held with Prof. Marzeban and all participating post-docs/student.
