Responsible for colloidal applications

Dr. Kristian Schilling Dr. Kristian Schilling.

Dr. Schilling, born in 1967, studied chemistry at the University of Hamburg. In the group of Prof. Hansjörg Sinn, Dr. Schilling worked on reactions of alumoxanes, which are catalysts for the Ziegler-Natta-process, and with steam phase dehalogenation, part of the pyrolysis concept for recycling corbohydrates with halogenic components.

Dr. Schilling attained his Master's degree in the group of Prof. Horst Weller on the topic "Photosensibilisation and Characterisation of Porous Titanium Dioxide Layers". The aim of this work was to examine whether these titanium dioxide layers are suitable for application in advanced photovoltaic cells. If the material is sensitized with dyes, "injection" solar cells can be constructed, a possible substitute for costly silicon in the future.

From 1996 to 1999, Dr. Schilling undertook his PhD thesis in the group of Prof. Markus Antonietti at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces. His thesis was on the "Characterisation of Micellar Systems with the Analytical Ultracentrifuge - Synthesis of Titanium Dioxide Particles in Micellar Nanoreactors".

In the end of 1999, Dr. Schilling set up the Nanolytics company, the first lab for physical analyses specialized on the colloidal domain. He has been managing the company since and is pursuing the further development of Analytical Ultracentrifugation in cooperation with partners in international networks.

Dr. Frank Krause Dr. Frank Krause.

Dr. Krause, born in 1970, studied chemistry at the TU Darmstadt. He received his Diploma degree in the group „Physical Biochemistry“ of Prof. Dr. Norbert A. Dencher on fluorescence anisotropy of biomembranes and artificial liposomes.

In 2004, Dr. Krause attained his Ph.D degree in the same group on “Biochemical characterisation of the supramolecular organisation of the mitochondrial OXPHOS complexes in mammals, fungi and plants”. Afterwards, he continued the research on mitochondrial protein complexes (Mitochondrial Protein Interactomics) with emphasis on OXPHOS supercomplexes. The experimental workhorse were native gel electrophoresis and related techniques.

Dr. Krause is author of 28 publications (27 in PubMed, 11 as corresponding author, Hirsch index: 19) and reviewer for several journals, e.g. Antibodies, mAbs, Journal of Proteome Research, Proteomics, Electrophoresis, Antioxidants & Redox Signaling, BBA – Bioenergetics, BBA – Molecular Basis of Disease, Molecular Microbiology.

Since 2011, Dr. Krause is Head Life Science of Nanolytics.
