Goutam Mukherjee, PostDoc in the Molecular and Cellular Modeling (MCM) group at HITS, has been awarded a Poster Prize at the 19th International Conference on Biological Inorganic Chemistry (ICBIC-19). The title of his poster was: “How Does CYP Sequence Affect CYP:CPR Complexation in a Phospholipid Bilayer and the Transfer of Electrons?”
The International Conference on Biological Inorganic Chemistry (ICBIC) provides the major platform to present and discuss the latest developments in all fields at the interface between Inorganic Chemistry and the Life Sciences. This year’s conference took place 11-16 August 2019 in Interlaken, Switzerland.
The Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) was established in 2010 by the physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, with a focus on the processing, structuring, and analyzing of large amounts of complex data and the development of computational methods and software. The research fields range from molecular biology to astrophysics. The shareholders of HITS are the HITS-Stiftung, which is a subsidiary of the Klaus Tschira Foundation, Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). HITS also cooperates with other universities and research institutes and with industrial partners. The base funding of HITS is provided by the HITS Stiftung with funds received from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The primary external funding agencies are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
