Experimental Molecular Biophysics
Proteins are little molecular machines in our body and essential for all life known. These complex molecules are not resting statically in the cells, but they are constantly moving. This “protein dance” is generally not random, but may be controlled and coordinated by changes in the protonation state of the protein. These dynamics are directly related to the proteins’ function in our cells.
In this virtual talk, Prof. Dr. Joachim Heberle shows how the combination of physics, chemistry, and biology helps to unravel the choreography of the “protein dance” and how this might be used for future applications.
The SFB 1078 is a research platform funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) bringing together the efforts of different research groups from Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Technische Universität Berlin (TU), the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU), the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP), the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen (JLU) and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (Israel).
