IZKF Junior Research Group 2


Welcome to the Dulin lab!

We are fascinated by protein-nucleic acid interactions, and in particular how genomes are replicated, transcribed and translated. Our aim is to understand how genome expression and maintenance are connected to diseases to discover new possible therapeutic approaches. We use high-end bespoke microscope with a highly interdisciplinary mindset, mixing biology, physics and chemistry, to observe nucleic acid molecules and/or proteins one at a time, and uncover their hidden behaviour with great precision and detail. Our lab has two main research lines: RNA viruses and cellular transcription. The Dulin lab is the Junior Research Group n°2 “Physics and Medicine” of the IZKF-Erlangen Klinikum, and we are located at the Interdisciplinary Center for Nanostructured Films (IZNF) of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg.

We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Salina Quack, who just joined the Dulin lab as a postdoc. She graduated her PhD from Ulm University under the supervision of Prof. Jens Michaelis, where she worked on nucleosome remodelers using single molecule FRET. In the Dulin lab, she will use her single molecu...

Mona has just submitted a new article in BioRviv, where she reports the replication kinetics of several viral RNA dependent RNA polymerases as a function of temperature using high throughput magnetic tweezers. To this end, she has developed and calibrated a new/simple/cheap temperature control syste...
