Major grant to research on the dynamic interactions between molecules
The interactions between molecules are the foundation of life and how we treat diseases using medicinal drugs. But what does it actually look like when a protein meets another molecule and binds to it? A new research project that has been awarded EUR 8.7 million by the European Research Council now aims to shed light on this elusive process. The [...]
