Tiny synthetic machines may soon be toiling away in artificial and natural cells
The Industrial Revolution harnessed the power of steam to put things in motion with huge machines that propelled the world into a new era of productivity. Molecular machines may be poised to deliver the next revolution, invisibly powering novel therapeutics and nanoscale industrial processes. Molecular machines abound in nature. They are the driving force behind functions like muscle contraction, cargo movement within cells along microtubules, and the beating of cilia and flagella. Nature has inspired the scientific community with its efficient and diverse molecular machinery, and the search for novel synthetic molecular machines with exciting new applications has begun. The BIOMOLMACS training network is working on integrating molecular machines with precisely designed macromolecules for a new era in nanobiomedical applications.
