Professor Hartmut Michel,
Winner of the 1988 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Brief introduction:

Hartmut Michel, a biochemist with Germany nationality, was born in Luther Weiss, Germany.
In 1975, he graduated from Universitaet Tuebingen and gained the master's degree.
In 1977, he gained the doctor's degree at Fort Woods University in Germany.
From 1981 to 1987, he worked as the Professor at the Institute of Biochemistry in German Society of MAPP.
From 1987 until now, he successively worked as the Professor, the chairman, the director at Institute of Biophysics in German Society of MAPP, and became one of Committee of Science, the foreign academician of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States(1996),and foreign academician of the Royal Academy of Sciences, Holland.
In 1988, Professor Hartmut Michel won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Currently, Professor Michel acts as the chairman of Molecular Membrane Biology Department at Marx Planck Institute of Biophysics, the Professor in Flangdefu University, Germany(Goethe University), the honorary doctor in University of Wuerzburg and Bologna University, and foreign academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Main Achievements:

Professor Michel works on the research of crucial protein for photosynthesis, and has made outstanding achievements in photosynthetic reaction center, aerobic respiration and cytochrome C oxidase and so on. Breaking through the analysis of membrane protein crystallization and its three dimensional space structure, he successfully obtained the first membrane protein crystal of photosynthetic reaction centre from the purple bacterium Rhodopseudomonas viridis and determined the three-dimensional structure of the reactive center with three angstroms high accuracy. Thus, he won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry together with others in 1988.
In addition, Michel also identified the structure of another purple bacteria depleting pigment protein complexes and explained the influence on depleting pigment protein complex’ function owing to the order change from the depleting pigment protein complexes subunits including high potential and low potential iron atom clusters. His pioneering work has been applied in medicine including nerve, tumor, heart, endocrine, metabolism, digestion, genetic, bone, reproductive medicine, respiratory system and other fields.

The Nobel Prize Workstation:

The Nobel Prize workstation will be the carrier of technical cooperation between Wuhan Huamei Biotech Co., LTD. and Professor Hartmut Michel. It will promote the landing and transformation of professor Hartmut Michel and his team’s innovative achievements in the East Lake High-Tech Development Zone. The workstation will work as a channel to promote the cooperation and union between the world's top scientific research technology and high quality industrial resources in High-Tech Development Zone.
As the director of the Nobel Prize workstation, Professor Michel will act as the chief scientist in Wuhan Huamei Biotech Co., LTD. He will provide us with technical guidance about product development, particularly in the field of membrane protein crystallization. He will use the world's top and authoritative technology to optimize our development platform of biological membrane proteins and antibodies so as to upgrade the product.
