Title: The Ribosome: The Cell's Protein-Synthesizing Machine and How Antibiotics Disrupt It

Abstract

Determining the structure of the ribosome has made it possible for Ramakrishnan and his colleagues to image antibiotics bound to the ribosome, leading to a better understanding of their action, which could help in the development of novel drugs. In his talk, Ramakrishnan conveys the excitement in the field that has arisen as a result of these discoveries.
