    Dr. Jia Li will develop a new method for nucleic acid analysis in order to detect multiple DNA signatures in a hundred of thousands of single bacterial cells. Dr. Lili Liu will investigate the morphology in lithium-ion batteries on the nanoscale.

    In PD Dr. Felix von Stetten’s group, molecular biologist Dr Jia Li will develop a new method for nucleic acid analysis in order to detect multiple DNA signatures in a hundred of thousands of single bacterial cells. She will especially focus on the efficient lysis of these cells without influencing downstream reactions, aiming at determining antibiotic-resistances of bacterial pathogens on a single cell level. The novel approach is intended to allow a more target-oriented therapy of hospital-acquired infections.

    With a two-year fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, electrochemist Dr Lili Liu will investigate the morphology in lithium-ion batteries on the nanoscale within Dr. Simon Thiele’s Porous Media Group. The main goal will be both to increase lifetime and efficiency of these batteries. Of special interest will be the microstructure formation of Li2O2 in the cathode and the interaction between reaction mechanism and morphology change. The work will be carried out in the new Freiburg Center for Interactive Materials and Bioinspired Technologies (FIT). Dr. Lili Liu received her PhD in 2015 from the Fudan University in China on the topic of selenium-based cathode materials for rechargeable lithium batteries. Lately she worked at the University of Wollongong, Australia.
