Building Of A SPR/MS Unit

In another project sponsored by the Hans and Ilse Breuer Foundation, the causes for Alzheimer’s disease are explored through biochemical and molecular biological methods. The contribution made by the Foundation enabled the establishment by Berliner researcher Prof. Gerd Multhaup of a sponsored research unit which works in an interdisciplinary fashion and which provides structure and function analysis (techniques of surface plasmon resonance – in short SPR – and mass spectrometry). The aim is to analyse the protein complexes responsible for the disease and to thus find a way which can prevent, delay or cure the disease.
 

Initial successes are documented through publications which have appeared in journals such as the Journal of Biological Chemistry or EMBO.
