Würdigungspreis 2015 for Maria Österbauer
Recieved for her Master's Thesis about the analysis of Tyrosin Kinase in bacterially infected cells. Now works in our group on her dissertation project about the development of novel photochemical systems to control biological processes within the cell.

Künstliche Photosynthese gelungen!
Photosynthese ist der wichtigste chemische Prozess auf der Erde – sie ermöglicht es, die Energie
der Sonne direkt zu speichern. Bisher waren nur Pflanzen und einige andere Organismen dazu in der Lage – und
seit Neuestem ForscherInnen der Johannes Kepler Universität (JKU) Linz. Einem Forscherteam um Prof. Günther
Knör (Vorstand des Instituts für Anorganische Chemie) gelang weltweit erstmals ein wesentlicher Schritt auf dem
Weg zur Treibstoffgewinnung und CO2-Fixierung durch artifizielle Photosynthese.
