We work on the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of proteins whose function is vital for the health of the human organism. Combining leading techniques for structure determination with state-of-the-art cell biological and biophysical methods we analyse the structural determinants for the proper function of the protein of interest. Our core expertise for structure determination is X-ray crystallography. For the analysis of large protein complexes we employ, in cooperation with the MPI for Molecular Physiology in Dortmund or the CSSB in Hamburg, single particle cryo electron microscopy.
