Institute for Biological Interfaces

The Institute for Biological Interfaces 2 (IBG2) is part of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) –The main focus of the research within this institute are peptides and proteins interacting with biological membranes. The aim is to compare the structures of selected peptides and proteins on the primary (sequence), secondary (conformation), tertiary (folding), and quarternary (self-assembly) level, in order to correlate these properties with the respective functional mechanisms.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
