Nearly 10 million euros ($13.6 million) in ERC grants for 6 Technische Universitaet Muenchen researchers
Date:1/24/2011

Organic Chemistry II for the Department of Chemistry at TUM and is a member of the Excellence Cluster "Center for Integrated Protein Science Munich" (CIPSM). He is also the founder of AVIRU, a spin-off company funded by the Exist Program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the research findings of which are further developed for medical application. Prof. Sieber receives an ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant.

The Origin of Life

A bacterium such as Escherichia coli contains about 5,000 different protein molecules. Overall, the organism is composed of about five million protein molecules. Taken alone, each of these molecules is dead matter. Only through the interaction of proteins in a confined space, such as a cell, can a viable system result. Thereby, proteins are permanently modified through reversible interactions with genetic molecules, such as DNA and RNA, or with other protein molecules. Food is decomposed into usable pieces from which new cell components are built until the cell can divide and a new organism emerges. A stated goal of modern systems biology is to identify and characterize the complete set of these interactions. Of interest here are, among other things, the binding strength and the reaction rates for the binding and dissolution of contacts between molecules.

Prof. Hendik Dietz is Professor of Biophysics at TUM; a Hans Fischer Tenure Track Fellow with the Institute for Advanced Study at TUM; and a member of the Excellence Cluster "Center for Integrated Protein Science Munich" (CIPSM). Prof. Dietz would like to use the the ERC Grant to develop new methodological approaches for the study of these interactions so that they can be examined more quickly and in more detail. Prof. Dietz receives an ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant.
