Welcome to the Canters group


Welcome to the site of the Canters Group, that is part of the Molecular Biophysics Consortium.


Research in the Molecular Biophysics Consortium focuses on:

  • the spectroscopy and single molecule behaviour of redox enzymes and electron transfer proteins in vitro and in vivo.
  • the process of electron transfer itself is the subject of intensive research.


There is a close colaboration between the Aartsma group, that provides input and expertise in the area of confocal single molecule laser spectroscopy, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and scanning probe spectroscopy (AFM, STM). Whereas the Canters group provides input in the area of protein chemistry, electrochemistry, enzyme and electron transfer kinetics and molecular spectroscopy.
