Protein Dynamics

The Protein Dynamics group aims to describe and understand biological systems at different levels of complexity. To this end, it develops methods to qualitatively and quantitatively detect biomolecules, particularly proteins.

The group is concerned both with the structure of proteins and with the dynamic changes triggered by external influences, metabolic processes and communication processes in cells. These play a role in almost all diseases – including common illnesses, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes. The potential applications for this work therefore extend from purely basic research through to new developments for medical diagnostics. An important aspect in this context is a targeted, personalised treatment of illnesses. However, such a therapy approach is not possible until it is known precisely where and how which (bio-)molecule acts inside the cell, how it is transported and where it binds; in other words, how the biological system works as a whole.
