Prof Wolfgang Baumeister awarded the 2019 Ivano Bertini Award for outstanding contributions to structural biology
The Ivano Bertini Award is offered by Instruct to recognise a significant achievement in frontier research that utilises an integrative structural biology approach.
The Ivano Bertini Award is offered by Instruct to recognise a significant achievement in frontier research that utilises an integrative structural biology approach. The award is an independently reviewed competition and commemorates Ivano Bertini, who developed powerful new methods in NMR and founded CERM in Florence. The award of €15,000 is endowed by Bruker BioSpin which is at the forefront of NMR instrument development with increasingly broad application and measurement sensitivity.
We are delighted to announce the 2019 recipient of the Ivano Bertini award is Wolfgang Baumeister, Director and Head of the Structural Biology department at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry and Honorary Professor of the Technical University in Munich.
Wolfgang Baumeister is world-renowned for his vision in studying molecular machines and assemblies in their functional context, i.e. in unperturbed cellular environments. He has pioneered the development of cryo-electron tomography as a key tool for cellular structural biology. This technique makes possible structural studies of cells in a close-to-living state in three dimensions with resolutions now approaching the subnanometer range. This is a revolutionary advancement, which has essentially created a new field, structural biology in situ.
