Press & Media of the SFB1423

The SFB1423 is a 4-year research institution funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and involving four funding institutions: Leipzig University, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine. 

Researchers from biochemical, biomedical and computational science contexts are working together across the boundaries of their respective institutions and disciplines to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the effects of structural dynamics on the function of the GPCR. Special research projects are carried out in 17 subprojects, which are evaluated every four years by the DFG in order to ensure the quality of the research in the long term.

Video of the SFB1423: GPCRs – We want to know how they work. 

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are vital building blocks in the human body. Without them, living beings can neither smell nor see; signal transmission in the brain would collapse and our body would not be able to regulate blood pressure. SFB1423 is researching these receptors and taking a close look at how they work. (November, 2021)
