Investigative Reporting on Proteins: Getting the Scoop on Nature’s Tiniest Machines
Proteins are the most amazing molecules and carry out a stunning array of tasks associated with life. Each one’s function depends on the details of its structure. Dr. Karplus will take a big picture look at proteins. What are they? Why are they important? How has the history of investigations into protein structure played a crucial role in advancing biomedical sciences and our understanding of life. Examples from his research include the “floodgate” hypothesis for how certain enzymes control cell signaling and influence health and disease.
