Molecular machines are proteins or protein complexes that convert chemical energy into conformational changes to carry out work in the cell. Our group studies how the molecular structures and dynamics of molecular machines together enable their function and regulation. One major focus are nucleic-acid interacting enzymes whose aberrant function or dysregulation is often associated with severe diseases such as cancer.
