Congratulations to Deepak Anand on his successful PhD defense!


We are happy to announce that Deepak Anand successfully mastered his PhD defense.

His work is entitled “Chiral separation of arginine based on tailor-made FhuA β-barrel proteins”. Deepak engineered the beta-barrel protein FhuA into a chiral channel protein to separate L- and D-arginine. His studies resulted in the following three publications: Chiral separation of D/L-arginine with whole cells through an engineered FhuA nanochannel (DOI: 10.1039/C9CC00154A), Nano-thin walled micro-compartments from transmembrane protein-polymer conjugates (DOI: 10.1039/C6SM02520J), and Grafting PNIPAAm from ß-barrel shaped transmembrane nanopores (DOI: 10.1016/j.biomaterials.2016.08.033).

Deepak worked in the division of Hybrid Catalysis & High Throughput Screening under the guidance of Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg.

The whole Schwaneberg group congratulates Deepak for his achievement and wishes all the best and good luck for his future. Well done, Deepak!
