We are different, but we all do great
Science & we have a lot of fun of doing it!

SOFT CONDENSED MATTER
ROBERT HOŁYST GROUP

.
The Cell-IN initiative joins the commercialization projects carried out at the IPC PAS in our Research Group. Cell-IN offers a reagent allowing the introduction of various types of macromolecules (from polymers, proteins, to DNA molecules) into mammalian cells.
Dr. Karol Makuch - post doc from our Team, received SONATA BIS 11 grant from Narodowe Centrum Nauki !!! His project „Diffusion of rigid particles and flexible polymers in complex fluids" received funding of ca. PLN 1.5 MLN. Karol Makuch we are so proud of you, and we wish you a lot of exciting research results!
We would like to inform, that our Lab Manager Kuźma Patrycja won the international competition - Best Lab Manager Award 2021! Congrats!

SOFT CONDENSED MATTER ROBERT HOŁYST GROUP

We are one of the scientific groups from IPC PAS in Warsaw, Poland. Our main goal is to understand and expand knowledge about soft and living matter in vivo and in vitro conditions. We are focus on the transport phenomena in complex liquid, quantitative biophysical chemistry & non-equilibrium processes.

Our Group involves specialists from different science fields, including physicists, biologists, chemists, engineers, and biotechnologists. We are enthusiasts of interdisciplinary projects because we believe that the most interesting things happen in places where two or three fields merge. We are not afraid to think big because the sky is the limit.

Nitrophenols (NPs) are hazardous pollutants found in various environmental matrices, including ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5), agricultural residues, rainwater, wildfires, and industrial wastes. This study showed for the first time the effect of three pure nitrophenols and their mixture on human lung cells to provide basic understanding of the NP influence on cell elements and processes.
We investigate the thermal relaxation of an ideal gas from a nonequilibrium stationary state. The gas is enclosed between two walls, which initially have different temperatures. After making one of the walls adiabatic, the system returns to equilibrium.
S-layers are highly ordered coats of proteins localized on the cell surface of many bacterial species. In these structures, one or more proteins form elementary units that self-assemble into a crystalline monolayer tiling the entire cell surface.
The radiation-resistant bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans is known as the world’s toughest bacterium. The S-layer of D. radiodurans, consisting of several proteins on the surface of the cellular envelope and intimately associated with the outer membrane, has therefore been useful as a model for structural and functional studies.
In thylakoid membranes, Photosystem II monomers from the stromal lamellae contain the subunits PsbS and Psb27 (PSIIm-S/27), while Photosystem II monomers from granal regions (PSIIm) lack these subunits. Here, we have isolated and characterised these two types of Photosystem II complexes.
The equilibrium constant (K) of biochemical complex formation in aqueous buffers with high concentration (>20 wt %) of nonionic compounds can vary by orders of magnitude in comparison with the K in a pure buffer. The precise molecular mechanisms of these profound changes are not known.
