The group of Marina Rodnina has developed novel approaches to study the function of the ribosome as a macromolecular machine. They pioneered the use of kinetic and fluorescence methods in conjunction with quantitative biochemistry to solve the mechanisms of translation. Marina Rodnina has over 160 publications in her research area.... read moreSince 2004 she has been an elected member of the European Molecular Biology Organization and since 2008 a Member of the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. She received the Hans Neurath Award of the Protein Society in 2015 and the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize in 2016. Her current interests are focused on the dynamics of the ribosome and translation factors, and the mechanisms of translational recoding and co-translational folding.
