Our research is focused on the study of the primary processes of photosynthesis. Photosynthetic organisms have made life possible on Earth and had contributed undoubtedly to development of oxygen dependent life on our planet.
Photosynthesis supplies our food, oxygen and the currently used energy sources, since the carbon found in fossil fuels, such as natural gas, crude oil, and coal were fixed from atmospheric carbon-dioxide by the photosynthetic process millions of years ago. The reactions leading to the energy conversion and storage take place in specially organized membrane-bound pigment-protein complexes, termed reaction centers. We are particularly interested in the link between the light-induced electron transfer and the accompanying protonational reactions occurring in these centers.
