LMU researchers analyze the rotation of a molecular motor using ultrafast spectroscopy and quantum mechanical calculations.
DNA is tightly packed into the nucleus of a cell. Nevertheless, the cellular machinery needs to constantly access the genomic information. An LMU team now reveals the inner workings of a molecular motor made of proteins which packs and unpacks DNA.
The Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy has developed a new format for its mentoring program.
Not only can synthetic molecules mimic the structures of their biological models, they can also take on their functions and may even successfully compete with them, as an artificial DNA sequence designed by LMU chemist Ivan Huc now shows.
Dr. Lucas Jae, independent group leader at the LMU Gene Center since 2016, has received Germany’s most important prize for junior scientists today!
Try out current research yourself: the school's lab has been successfully launched
Chemist Ivan Huc creates artificial folded molecular architectures called ‘foldamers’.
LMU researchers have visualized the complex interplay between protein synthesis, transport and modification.
From April 6th to 8th, 30 young and established scientists from China, Germany and neighboring countries will meet at LMU to present their research in the field of nanopharmaceuticals.
