The detailed map is the first to determine the structure of a massive protein machine with near-atomic resolution.
More than 1,000 people gathered to hear exceptional researchers, including 5 Nobel Laureates, from across disciplines to consider our future at a conference honoring Ahmed Zewail.
On February 26, some of the nation's leading scientists and researchers—including five Nobel laureates and members of all three National Academies—will gather at Caltech to discuss some of the most perplexing questions facing humanity.

A team led by Caltech's André Hoelz has solved the architecture of the nuclear pore complex's complicated inner ring, a subcomplex that is central to the cellular machine's function. In the process, they disproved many previously held ideas about how the inner ring works.

Andre Hoelz, Assitant Professor of Biochemistry, has received the
