Proteins are the machinery of life.
We try to understand it from its very birth to death.
Both processes are involved into generation of very wide-spread diseases such as cancer, alzheimer and cystic fibrosis.
Proteins are dynamic molecules.
We are just at the beginning of the learning curve on how the dynamics of proteins influence the function and creating new therapeutic avenues to target all kinds of still "undruggable" diseases.
Apart from our patience, skill, luck it takes some money.
Funding basic sciences means allowing us to "play" the game that creates a better future.
