The subject of the Center is to further develop basic theoretical and experimental research of the energy and charge transfer in biomolecules and in complex molecular systems. The main aim is to create a premier scientific and training will by coordinating and integrating its five subjects with other groups from EU, US, and other countries.
- Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry
A team from the IOCB CAS CR is the dominant and coordinating part of the Center. Its scientific activities include theroretical, computational, and experimental study of the energy, electron, proton, and another ions transfer in biomolecules and complex molecular systems.
- Institute of Chemical Technology
A team from ICT will investigate the interactions between molecules, atoms, and ions by the means of methods of statistical thermodynamics, statistical physics, and molecular modelling. The experimental part will cover the area of the drug design and synthesis, and it will study the charge transfer in DNA.
- University of Pardubice
The experimental group from the University of Pardubice will study the properties and catalytical activity of metal ions in molecular sieves.
- Palackeho University in Olomouc
The subject of the theoretical research of the froup from Palackeho University in Olomouc is the study of the protein structure and dynamics, and of the nezyme reactions.
- Physical Institute
Laboratory at the Institute of Physics will study the dynamics of the charge transport by the means of ultrafast time-resolved terahertz spectroscopy.
