Around 100 scientists work at the Rudolf Virchow Center in the field of target proteins. These fullfil important physiological tasks. Our research groups are studying the structure and function of these proteins to understand the causes of diseases.More details
Structural biology, microscopy, proteomics and mass spectrometry are just some of the key technologies established in our research groups.More details
Soap molecules reversibly open specific channel proteins in bacteria. These channels are part of the defense mechanisms of bacteria and therefore of relevance to the medical field. A Würzburg research group published these results in the renowned journal PNAS.
mRNA plays a key role in the conversion of genetic information from DNA to proteins. Their production is a delicate process. A research team at the University of Würzburg has now identified a crucial factor.
Dr. Tamara Girbl started her new research group at the Rudolf Virchow Center of the University of Würzburg in April. She focuses on the interaction of immune cells and blood vessels, which plays an important role in many inflammatory diseases or even strokes.
All research groups of the Rudolf Virchow Center are working on target proteins. Here you can find an overview of each group.
Join us! The Rudolf Virchow Center is always looking for new employees to advance the research in our center.
