Summary on Grant Application Form
Molecular biology came into being around 50 years ago, it was founded in part by physicists, such as Francis Crick, but over the intervening years molecular biologists and physicists have drifted apart. Yet, there is a need for teams of physicists, chemists and biologists to work together to try to understand the cells of which all living organisms are made. This need is illustrated by the sequencing of the complete set of our genes, the human genome project, which was only possible because biologists and a type of mathematician, called a bioinformatician, worked together, using techniques relying on basic physics and chemistry. The workshop will bring together biologists, chemists and physicists to discuss how proteins do their jobs in cells. Apart from our natural curiosity to understand how our proteins and our cells work, such understanding is important to understanding diseases such as sickle-cell anemia, Alzheimer's disease, and cataracts.
