In March 2020 the research project “Covid19-NMR” was started at the Goethe University Frankfurt. Since then, the project has developed into an international consortium of scientists from all over the world to study SARS-CoV-2 using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. A core team in Frankfurt a. M. and Darmstadt, consisting of more than 50 scientists – from master students, assistant scientists, technical assistants and principal investigators – is investigating the “structure” of SARS-CoV-2 to pave the way for agents discovery. NMR spectroscopy is used to create atomic models of RNA and protein molecules in the closest possible environment to life. At present, the greatest hope in the fight against the corona virus rests on one of the antiviral agents already clinically tested in another context. Based on this knowledge, the scientists are able to clarify the structure-function relationships, thus laying the foundation for the systematic evaluation of potential SARS-CoV-2 target molecules for new agents. PhD student Katharina Hohmann (28 years) is part of the core team at Goethe University on the Riedberg in Frankfurt. In my photo reportage I report on research on the corona virus based on her everyday work-life and provide a photographic insight into laboratory work. My photographs represent an inventory of medical developments and tell of the exceptional situation in the corona pandemic.
