    Biophysical Chemistry

    "Many diseases are caused by misfolded and aggregated proteins. Hence a molecular understanding of the protein folding process is of fundamental interest to science and crucial for the development of medications".

    Prof. Dr. Karin Hauser

  • Wittmann Group
    Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry

    "In nature, carbohydrates do more than just provide energy. They’re involved in significant biological recognition processes. Our aim is to gain a better understanding of these processes in order to control them and suppress the development of diseases such as cancer."
