Max-Planck-Institute of Biophysics Company Profile

08:03 EDT 23rd September 2018 | BioPortfolio

An essential prerequisite for the understanding of the fundamental processes of life is the knowledge of the structure of the participating macromolecules, in as much detail as possible. Two of our three departments are devoted to the challenging task of determining the structure of membrane proteins. Under the direction of Hartmut Michel (Nobel Prize in Chemistry of 1988 for the first structure determination of a membrane protein), the Department of Molecular Membrane Biology approaches this problem primarily by x-ray crystallography, whereas the Department of Structural Biology, headed by Werner Kühlbrandt, uses the complementary technique of electron microscopy. The Department of Biophysical Chemistry, directed by Ernst Bamberg, studies the function of these proteins in native or reconstituted membranes by electrophysiological and spectroscopic methods. A fourth department, either in Theoretical Biophysics or with a complementary experimental interest, will be established in the near future.Since April 2003 the Institute and its three departments are no longer housed in separate buildings. This has resulted in an improved scientific interaction between the research groups. Links to fellow researchers at Frankfurt University are strengthened further as the Institute is now situated next to the University's biology, chemistry, and, from 2004, physics laboratories on the same campus.
