Ebbinghaus: What can we learn by observing proteins in the cell?

Watch the talk of RESOLV scientists Simon Ebbinhaus at the TEDx event organized by RUB.

If you thought proteins concern only hens and bodybuilders, you are dead-wrong! Today scientists know that protein folding and aggregation are associated with neurodegenerative diseases like Huntington, Parkinson and Alzheimer’s. So to fight those diseases we have to know more about the behavior of proteins than making scrambled eggs. How do proteins behave in our cells? What can we learn from that? How to prevent illness-causing protein behaviour? This talk will teach us what recent research has discovered by exploring protein folding, misfolding and aggregation directly in cells.
