Research Group Seeger
We are a team of creative, ambitious and friendly researchers who investigate membrane transport processes in pathogenic bacteria and develop innovative protein engineering tools. We combine the disciplines of structural biology, binder generation, protein biochemistry and microbiology to uncover molecular details of how membrane transport proteins expel antibiotics, shuttle siderophores and export lipids. Sybodies and NestLink enable us to target membrane transporters in the cellular context to develop rapid diagnostics, novel antibiotics and tailor-made research tools.
