Protonation Dynamics in Protein Function

SFB 1078 “Protonation Dynamics in Protein Function” | Joachim Heberle

What controls the dance of the proteins?

Proteins are one of the most important molecules building our bodies, but they are not static: they are constantly moving, like dancing, and this dance is directly related to their function. These movements are generally not random, they may be controlled and coordinated by changes in the protonation state of the groups in key locations. In a short video we will describe how do we combine physics, chemistry, and biology to understand these control mechanisms. We will bring you into our labs where key players in the research will present their work. The video will be followed by a talk of the spokesperson of the program, Prof. Joachim Heberle.

The SFB 1078 is a research platform funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) bringing together the efforts of different research groups from Freie Universität Berlin (FU), Technische Universität Berlin (TU), the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU), the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP), and the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen (JLU).

PUBLIC PRESENTATION VIA LIVESTREAM.

Joachim Heberle

Freie Universität Berlin

Spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center 1078 “Protonation Dynamics in Protein Function”

Joachim Heberle graduated in physical chemistry in 1980 at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg. Three years later he got his PhD in Biophysics at the Freie Universität Berlin. From 1991 to 1993 he was a PostDoc at the Hahn-Meitner-Institut Berlin. In 1993 he set up his own young investigators group at the Jülich research institute. During this time, he got his habilitation in biophysical chemistry (1998) at the Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf. In 2005 he became a professor in the department of chemistry at the University of Bielefeld. Since 2009 he is professor of experimental molecular biophysics at the physics department of the Freie Universität Berlin.

Prof. Heberle was also a guest researcher at the University of Arizona in Tucson (1991), Göteborg University (1995), Changchun University, China (2009) and the Technical University of Nagoya, Japan (2015–2016).

The scientific focus of Joachim Heberle is on the development and application of vibrational spectroscopic methods (IR and Raman) to investigate the function of proteins. Since 2017 Heberle has been the spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center 1078 “Protonation Dynamics in Protein Function”.
