Upcoming Events

Conference "Molecular Machinery: Making, Measuring, Modeling" - Mach-5

The conference will take place at the Plön Castle, Germany, from 11 to 14 September 2022, and will target scientists who are active in the field of molecular machines and their components (motors, switches, rotors, actuators …). As in the macroscopic world, specific functions (directed motion, pumping, sensing, assembly, information storage, processing…) arise from coupling to an energy source or trigger (light, redox, concentration gradient, electric, magnetic fields …) and their interaction with the environment (solution, surface, polymers, biological systems …).

The event is co-funded by the ERC Advanced Grant "Leaps" and constitutes the final conference of the project.
