Wolfgang Baumeister studies the structure and function of molecular machines, particularly the interactions between molecules involved in protein quality control.
His research interests also include the development of electron cryotomography for in situ structural studies, and its application in studies of ribosomal supercomplexes, the cytoskeleton and synaptic structures.
