Expanding the conventional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique, Dr. Wüthrich developed a method of determining the conformations of proteins, nucleic acids and other biomacromolecules as such in solutions or biomembranes, where they exhibit their function. This achievement made an unprecedented contribution to structural and molecular biology, representing a great advance in biotechnology.
