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!
HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by 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, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
