Rahul Deb won JCMM scholarship for foreign student!
Our doctoral student Rahul Deb has recently won JCMM scholarship for foreign university student for the entire duration of his Ph.D. studies. The student has started his full-time Ph.D. study program at the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC) Masaryk University, in the field of Biomolecular Chemistry, under supervision of Assoc. Prof. Robert Vacha, from December-2018. Rahul is working on antimicrobial peptides which lead to translocation and pore formation at various membranes and systematically investigating the complex interplay with the help of multi-scale computer simulations. This molecular understanding is useful for the rational design of new antimicrobial peptides used in medicine, cosmetics, or disinfection.
