Brief description We now have a great deal of information about the structures of proteins that interact to do much of the chemistry that governs the lives of cells and organisms, but are just beginning to understand how proteins communicate with each other in the large, dynamic molecular machines that carry out many cellular functions. Australia has invested in expensive instrumentation that can be used in conjunction with new laboratory methods to develop better understanding of how these machines work, and how they malfunction in disease. This project will bring together four scientists with a unique combination of expertise and novel technologies to develop understanding of changes in structure of a large protein complex in different functional states.
