Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, University of Groningen
Thomas Schlathölter obtained his PhD in surface science in Osnabrück/Germany. He came to Groningen as a Marie-Curie Fellow to work interactions of highly charged ions with fullerenes. As a fellow of the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences, he started to work on molecular mechanisms underlying biological radiation damage.
Since 2013, Schlathölter is affiliated with the Zernike Institute where he is heading a research group focusing on various aspects of gas-phase (bio)molecular interactions.
By combining mass spectrometric techniques with state of the art spectroscopic technniques, the lab is working on topics such as biomolecular structure and dynamics, biomolecular radiation damage and astrochemistry.
