Chemistry & science: A life-long pursuit of scientific breakthroughs
The 2002 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Kurt Wüthrich, talks about the importance of science education and chemistry for the future of humanity and how he spent all his life in the pursuit of scientific breakthroughs.
Physics Principle of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in the Life Sciences
In biological / biomedical research, as well as in medical diagnosis, the physical principle of nuclear magnetic resonance has found widespread applications. On the one hand, these include obtaining images of macroscopic objects, such as the inside of the human body, and on the other hand, many applications focus on the structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules. Such uses of NMR in structural biology have contributed in many cases to the basic knowledge that allows the rational design of new medications or improvements of medications that are already in clinical use.
