Untangling the structure of disordered proteins in Alzheimer's disease with ultra-high field NMR

In this video, Professor Christian Griesinger, Head of NMR-Based Structural Biology at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, discusses his work using ultra-high field NMR to investigate intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). The structure of IDPs are important in diseases such as neurodegenerative diseases and Professor Griesinger's research allows the function, or malfunction, of such IDPs to be investigated.

Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry

Professor Christian Griesinger is the director at the Max Plank Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. In 1979, Griesinger studied both chemistry and physics at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt. He received his Ph.D in chemistry in 1986 as a student of Horst Kessler. Between 1986 and 1989, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the ETH Zurich for Richard Ersnt. Since then, Griesinger has worked as a professor in organic chemistry at the University of Frankfurt, as well as being an honorary professor at the University of Göttingen. Griesinger has been awarded the Sommerfeld prize, Göttfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize and the Bayer Prize.
