A bit belated, but this is my favorit impression from the IPS conference in Kyoto December 2018.
I took a morning off to visit the meserizing Nijō Castle in the heart of the city. There were basically no Westerners anywhere, and I was singled out by a school class for souvenir photos. I only hope they knew that they made my day, and I got this shot as reward ;-! Plus they gave me a couple of cool crane origamis that I brought home.
PS: In the back, you see the Imperial gate. The adornment of the gate used to be an important status symbol. I guess this one does the job!

Koen Visscher, a former Master student in our group, has just published an article on ion channel clusters,
Supramolecular organization and functional implications of K+ channel clusters in membranes, which was accepted in Angewandte Chemie.
We used a novel approach that combines dynamic nuclear polarizaiton-enhanced solid-state NMR experiments and large-scale computer simulations. With this approach, we were able to show that potassium channel clustering depends on the gating state of the channels. Our study demonstrates a link between potassium channel clustering and function, and uncovers a hitherto unknown mechanism of ion channel communication.
This approach can be used to study membrane protein - membrane protein interactions in a broad context.
Way to go Koen!
