On 27 October 2018, Poul Nissen was interviewed by Radio24syv for the program titled "24 questions for the Professor" on protein structure research. Host of the interview was research journalist Lone Frank.  

 

Description of the podcast translated from Danish to English:

Structural biologist Poul Nissen describes how the biology of the body becomes chemistry and physics when exploring the components of our cells. The researchers chart and visualise enzymes and receptors using methods like X-ray and electron microscopy in order to understand the complexity of the molecules' functions. Their structure is not only the key to tailoring medicaments but also provides enlightenment into the mystery of life itself.
