Have you ever tried to explain complex scientific findings just with words? We all know how important clear and memorable scientific visualization is to communicate our research to the general public. Therefore, in spring 2021 we hostet a video contest to showcase the research that is going on in the MBM group. All submissions were judged by an in-house scientific and non-scientific jury and today we proudly present the winners:
The runner-up is Camilo Aponte-Santamaria with his movie about force-induced disulfide bond swapping.
And the winner is Jannik Buhr with his movie about talin membrane binding. Congratulations for gernerating the best MBM movie!
The winning movies and other incredible submissions can be viewed here on our movie and image media page. Have fun!
The Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) was established in 2010 by the physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, with a focus on the processing, structuring, and analyzing of large amounts of complex data and the development of computational methods and software. The research fields range from molecular biology to astrophysics. The shareholders of HITS are the HITS-Stiftung, which is a subsidiary of the Klaus Tschira Foundation, Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). HITS also cooperates with other universities and research institutes and with industrial partners. The base funding of HITS is provided by the HITS Stiftung with funds received from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The primary external funding agencies are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
