Tiny technologies with enormous impact
TEDxTUM talk on molecular machines
2018-09-14 – News from the Physics Department
This year, TEDxTUM focused on particles that are not visible to the human eye but still can have a huge effect. For example in the form of molecular machines made of DNA, as Professor Hendrik Dietz and his team are investigating at TUM’s Laboratory for Biomolecular Nanotechnology. Inspired by nanomachines in nature, the physicists around Leibniz Prize winner Dietz are working on building entire machines and motors from DNA. In the future, these machines could be used to transport drugs to the desired location in the body. In his TEDxTUM talk “Molecular machines of the future”, Dietz described the current state of this research.
