New techniques of medical imaging reveal details about proteins, the building blocks of life. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy reveals not only what proteins inside cells look like, but how they change over time and how they can sometimes stop working properly, leading to a disease. This information can help create targeted drugs to help stop, in particular, neurodegenerative diseases like ALS.
