Membrane Protein Structure And Interaction Facility

Grant number: LE0668017

Abstract

While it is estimated that a third of the human genome encodes for membrane proteins, the structures of only relatively few membrane proteins are currently known. It will be some time before membrane protein structure determination becomes routine, yet over 50% of the drugs on the market today rely on the activity of membrane proteins for their efficacy. This application seeks to establish a Membrane Protein Structure and Interaction Facility for the development and application of novel techniques and approaches to study the structure and interactions of membrane proteins. Research progress will be greatly enhanced by the establishment of this dedicated facility with cutting-edge technologie..
