Description

Sorry about the audio problems for the first 30 seconds or so - stick with it, it levels out soon.
Proteins are arguably the most important biological components in any living creature but only now are we beginning to look into the role water plays in their folding.

From its effect on protein folding to its work as a universal solvent, the unique properties of water make it an indispensable ingredient for life. In this Discourse, Sylvia McLain will explore the fundamental and mysterious role of water in life.

Sylvia McLain is a Research Lecturer in the University of Oxford's Department of Biochemistry. She investigates the role of water in protein folding and life.

This Discourse was filmed in the Ri on Friday 25 February 2017.
