Proteins are essential building blocks of life. In fact, they are veritable “nanomachines” that need not fear comparison with the machines of our everyday life: As flexible turbines, pumps and channels, they are responsible for numerous processes in cells.

However, the biological activity of proteins only becomes apparent when they are studied on the nanometer scale. Thanks to modern biophysical methods, their complex and fascinating mode of action can now be understood at the atomic level.

In the series “Meet the Scientist”, the renowned biophysicist Joachim Heberle shows how scientists conduct research on proteins. He explains how their work provides important impulses for understanding diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s and contributes to the development of new drugs.
