My Inspiration. As a little boy, I always disassembled my toys in order to find out how they work. This obsession has involved into my passion to understand biological systems. How can living matter be organized and structured to such a high extent and, yet, be so dynamic with a cycle time of an hour or less? The answer to this apparent paradox would not only be of great value for our perception of life, but would also have practical implications for nano- and biotechnology. The laws of physics have proven to be valuable for the description of our material world. Do they also tell us how the interactions of macromolecules gives rise to life? I don’t know, but it is great fun trying to find it out.
