Dr. Klaus Schulten
In the coming days, we will be releasing media footage from the exciting Frontiers in Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics 2014 meeting held at the Hilton Hotel in Chicago from May 7th-9th.
As a first piece of footage, we can think of no better than keynote speaker Klaus Schulten (UIUC)’s fascinating atom-by-atom movie titled “Photosynthetic Membrane of Purple Bacteria – A Clockwork of Proteins and Processes“, now made available with Schulten’s narrative of the movie during the keynote lecture.
We initially posted this as a silent movie to accompany our interview with professor Schulten in which he addresses his scientific research interests both past and present, his perspective on some of the key challenges for the field of membrane protein biophysics in the coming 5-10 years, his keynote lecture, and the Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics Consortium.
Now you can watch the movie together with Schulten’s own narration:
MPSDC Team Member Robert Nakamoto, who leads the Consortium’s Protein Production/Expression Core, is this year’s Chair of the 2014 Biophysical Society Program Committee. Nakamoto was interviewed several times by Biophysical Society TV for the occasion of the 2014 Biophysical Society meetings. You can check out the interviews below:
Biophysical Society president and MPSDC Team Member Francisco Bezanilla was interviewed today by Biophysical Society TV. You can check out the interview below:
We are delighted to share with you the latest episode of our Behind the Scenes series. Within this series, we explore the inner workings of the Consortium with a camera in hand, dedicating to showing you what takes place within the laboratory setting and outside of it.
For our second feature, we present the following video feature of Emad Tajkhorshid, an active participant in the Consortium’s Computational Modeling Core and the Structural Dynamics of ABC Transporter and Conformational Dynamics in the CLC Channel/Transporter Family projects. We sat down with Emad and asked him about his work with computational modeling, how his laboratory collaborates with other entities within the Consortium, and how he views the role of the Consortium within the broader scientific community. Let us know what you think in the comments!
