Martin Beck

Max Planck Institute of Biophysics

Martin Beck is the Managing Director at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics in Frankfurt. His team uses cellular tomography to visualize the molecular content of cells in 3D. The nucleus is a cellular compartment that contains the genetic information. Nuclear pores are the gatekeepers of the genome and regulate the transport of molecules in and out of the nucleus. Martin Beck’s team has elucidated the architecture of the human nuclear pore, a molecular puzzle that consists of about 1000 protein pieces. This is important for our understanding of aging, neurodegenerative and genetic diseases, viral infection as well as malignant transformation.
