Young Scien­tist Rodrigo Fernan­dez Lahore is contribut­ing to three publi­ca­tions in 2022

Young scien­tist Rodrigo Fernan­dez Lahore, who is working on his doctoral project in the research group of Hector Fellow Peter Hegemann, has contributed to three studies which have been published in Nature Commu­ni­ca­tions in fall 2022.

Rodrigo Fernan­dez Lahore is lead author of the article "Calcium-perme­able channel­rhodopsins for the photo­con­trol of calcium signal­ing", which focuses on the calcium perme­abil­ity of channel­rhodopsins and was published in late Decem­ber 2022 (Nat Commun 13, 7844 (2022)). Two other publi­ca­tions to which Fernan­dez Lahore's research has contributed relate to the perme­abil­ity and ion selec­tiv­ity of channel­rhodopsin (Nat Commun 13, 7253 (2022)) and to the origin of fluores­cence and its voltage sensi­tiv­ity in micro­bial rhodopsin (Nat Commun 13, 5501 (2022)).

Rodrigo Fernan­dez Lahore is a doctoral researcher in the Hector Fellow Academy since 2020. He is conduct­ing research at Humboldt-Univer­sität zu Berlin in the disci­pline of Biophysics in the group of Hector Fellow Peter Hegemann on an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary project funded by the Hector Fellow Academy entitled "High-resolu­tion optoge­net­ics with organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs)". The project takes place in close collab­o­ra­tion with Hector Fellow Karl Leo, Depart­ment of Physics, from the Technis­che Univer­sität Dresden. Further­more, the young scien­tist Giuseppe Ciccone is involved in the research project.
