Proteins and their Structure at the Interface of Chemistry, Physics and Biology

Prof. Robert Huber

Nobel Laureate for Chemistry, Munich

Keynote Speaker

Keynote speaker: Prof. Robert Huber is a Nobel Laureate for Chemistry, Professor at the Technical University in Munich and former Director of the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry. He began his work with studies of proteins involved in excitation energy and electron transfer, light-harvesting proteins, later bilin-binding protein, the reaction centre and ascorbate oxidase. Prof. Huber's work has led to the development of methods on protein crystallography and the elucidation of protein structures which serve as targets for ligand design and development in medicine and plant protection including the key components of photosynthesis. It has also led to the development of Patterson search methods, to methods and suites of computer programmes to identify data evaluation and absorption correction, for protein crystallographic computing, for computer graphics and electron density interpretation and refinement and for area detector data collection. These methods and programmes are in use in many laboratories in the world today.
