The Herrmann AFM Group
Elucidating the mechanisms of action of bioactive natural products by AFM

Welcome to the Junior Research Group

PD Dr. Fabian Christopher Herrmann

As a group of natural product researchers, we are mainly interested in the elucidation of the antiinfective mechanisms of bioactive natural products by a variety of microscopic techniques such as Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM).
