The molecular blue-print for a mitochondrial nanomachine

Project: Research

Project Description

This project aims at a comprehensive understanding of the architecture of a biological nanomachine, through
broad-reaching investigation of the molecular contacts that enable the component parts to work together. The
discovery project takes the foundation knowledge of each of the component parts, builds a conceptual framework
of engineering principles to understand how the nanomachine is assembled, using a breakthrough technology to
address the precise architecture of the component parts within the nanomachine. The proposed research has a
regional focus, linking researchers and research students in Australia with key laboratories in Japan and the
United States.
