Assoc. Prof. Madoka Suzuki and his colleagues have been awarded a research grant (Program Grant) from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) for their proposal, “Nanoscale heat transfer phenomena: new paradigm for intra- and intercellular signalling and shaping”.

The aim of our exhibition is providing chances for various people to realize the diversity and importance of the “Shape” of proteins though experiences such as watching, feeling and constructing. We hope it helps them to deepen their understanding for biomolecules. The details of exhibition are as following:
“Watching” by accessing PDBj database and browsing protein molecules with CG in sterically.
“Feeling” by touching the molecule models made with a 3D printer
“Constructing” by making molecules with paper crafts
We also introduce the methods and facilities such as synchrotrons and high resolution electron microscopes (Nobel Prize of this year was awarded for it!) to solve molecule shapes.
