Almost 2 years of a community-wide effort to bring the important discussions of FRET as a tool in integrative structural biology.
The paper is now available in eLife: https://elifesciences.org/articles/60416
Our recent work on the ensemble structure of the α-Synuclein monomer has just been accepted to Structure (Cell Press).
Great work by Jiaxing Chen (of the Dokholyan lab), Sofia Zaer, the collaboration with Prof. Nikolay Dokholyan and with Dr. Nir Kalisman, and to all the rest of the contributors.
I am very excited to congratulate our collaborators in the Cordes group (LMU, Munich) for winning the Council for Higher Education of Israel - PhD Sandwich Scholarship Program.
Soon we will host Mrs. Gabriel Moya & Oliver Brix, from the laboratory of Prof. Thorben Cordes (LMU, Munich), as part of our on-going collaboration on further developing the Flow Virometer. This will be possible thanks to the PhD student exchange samdwich scholarship program, provided by Israel's Council for Higher Education.
Congrats to all - let's continue the great work.
I am honored to welcome Dr. Paul David Harris to our group as a new postdoc.
Dr. Harris recently finished his PhD in KAUST under the supervision of Prof. Samir Hamdan and Prof. Satoshi Habuchi, where he studied mechanisms of Flap Endonuclease 1 at the single-molecule level.
Dr. Harris will join the alpha-Synuclein project in general, and to its structural dynamics and single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy aspects in particular.
Welcome to the erner group
We just got funding from the Israel Science Foundation, within the KillCorona – Curbing Coronavirus Research Program, to continue the development of a new technique for the rapid bio-detection of intact viruses without compromising accuracy, specificity and sensitivity.
We would like to thank the ISF for the support.
With the current COVID19 pandemic, we have diverted our attention to accelerate a few ideas we now translate towards several alternative detetion schemes of COVID19. The focus we chosen is to minimize the test time, and the sample handling required for nowadays golden-standard assays relying on RT-qPCR.

I had the pleasure to present the achievements of Single Molecule studies of Molecular Biology.
It was certainly a great opportunity to give back to community. The audience was great, as it included people from all ages, including 6 year olders who had understood the talk and have shown interest.
Can't wait for the next time!
