»Antifreeze proteins are one of nature’s fascinating adaptations to extreme conditions. Being a protein structure chemist and biophysicist I am particularly interested in the unusual ability of these proteins to bind to ice crystals with high selectivity and above all quasi permanently. The structural basics of these interactions have not been understood completely. With regard to technical applications we modify these molecules, aiming at novel properties.«
