A new type of medicine, custom-made with tiny proteins | Christopher Bahl

TED Talks Science and Medicine

Some common life-saving medicines, such as insulin, are made of proteins so large and fragile that they need to be injected instead of ingested as pills. But a new generation of medicine -- made from smaller, more durable proteins known as peptides -- is on its way. In a quick, informative talk, molecular engineer and TED Fellow Christopher Bahl explains how he's using computational design to create powerful peptides that could one day neutralize the flu, protect against botulism poisoning and even stop cancer cells from growing.

Um novo tipo de medicina, customizado com proteínas minúsculas | Christopher Bahl

TEDTalks Ciência e Medicina

Alguns medicamentos comuns que salvam vidas, como a insulina, são feitos de proteínas tão grandes e frágeis que elas precisam ser injetadas em vez de ingeridas como pílulas. Mas uma nova geração de medicamentos, feita a partir de proteínas menores e mais duráveis, conhecidas como peptídeos, está a caminho. Numa palestra rápida e informativa, o engenheiro molecular e bolsista TED, Christopher Bahl, explica como ele está usando o design computacional para criar peptídeos poderosos que podem, um dia, neutralizar a gripe, proteger contra o envenenamento por botulismo e até impedir o crescimento de células cancerígenas.

Un nuevo tipo de medicina hecha a medida con proteínas diminutas | Christopher Bahl

TEDTalks Ciencia y Medicina

Algunos fármacos importantísimos como la insulina se elaboran a partir de proteínas demasiado grandes y frágiles, por lo que no pueden ingerirse en forma de pastillas y deben inyectarse. Pero se avecina una nueva generación de fármacos elaborados a partir de proteínas más pequeñas y durables, llamadas péptidos. En esta rápida e informativa charla, el ingeniero molecular y becario TED Christopher Bahl nos explica cómo utiliza el diseño computacional para crear potentes péptidos que podrían algún día neutralizar el virus de la influenza, combatir el botulismo y hasta detener el crecimiento de células cancerosas.

Eine neue Art von Arzneimitteln, maßgefertig mit winzigen Proteinen | Christopher Bahl

TEDTalks Wissenschaft und Medizin

Einige der gängigen lebensrettenden Medikamente, wie zum Beispiel Insulin, sind aus Proteinen so groß und zerbrechlich, dass sie intravenös verabreicht, statt eingenommen werden müssen. Aber eine neue Generation an Arzneimitteln -- aus kleineren robusteren Proteinen namens Peptiden -- ist auf dem Weg. In einem kurzen, informativen Vortrag, erklärt Molekülingenieur und TED Partner Christopher Bahl wie er am Computer wirksame Peptide entwickelt, die eines Tages die Grippe ausschalten, gegen Lebensmittelvergiftung schützen und Krebszellen am Wachstum hindern könnten.

맞춤 제작 가능한 단백질로 만든 신약 | 크리스토퍼 발(Christopher Bahl)

TEDTalks 과학과 의료

인슐린과 같은 생명을 구하는 일부 의약품은 분자가 크고 분해되기 쉬운 단백질로 만들어져 알약으로 복용하는 대신 주사로 투여해야 합니다. 하지만 차세대 의약품인 펩타이드는 작은 분자와 내구성이 강한 단백질로 만들어졌으며 개발 중에 있습니다.분자 공학자이자 TED 강연자인 크리스토퍼 발은 인플루엔자 바이러스를 중화시키고 보툴리누스 중독증으로부터 보호할 수 있으며 암세포가 생성되지 않도록 막을 수 있는 펩타이드가 컴퓨터를 통해 설계되는 과정을 단시간에 유익하게 설명합니다.

Un nouveau type de médecine, sur mesure avec de minuscules protéines | Christopher Bahl

TEDTalks Science et médecine

Quelques médicaments vitaux ordinaires, comme l'insuline, sont composées de protéines si grandes et frêles qu'ils doivent être injectés au lieu d'être ingérés comme comprimés. Cependant, une nouvelle génération de médicaments -- composés de protéines plus petites et plus résistantes, connues comme peptides -- est florissante. Lors d'une conférence courte mais instructive, l'ingénieur moléculaire et Membre TED Christopher Bahl explique comment il utilise la conception informatique pour créer des peptides puissants qui pourraient un jour neutraliser la grippe, protéger contre le botulisme, et même mettre empêcher le développement des cellules cancéreuses.
