Remarks / more information:

undefinedCells are small and crammed with many different components, and they are the stage for continuous complex chemical reactions. Wilhelm Huck, Professor of Physical Organic Chemistry at the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM), wants to understand how this works. He starts at the very beginning: how can life emerge from dead chemicals? 'We know a great deal about DNA, cell membranes, proteins and the other building blocks of a cell. But the complexity of the innumerable interactions between all those building blocks creates a dynamic system, and in chemical terms, we do not yet understand how it can support itself.'
